|Did a clockwise circuit of the horseshoe out of Ambleside. Pretty cloudy and windy on the way up but led to some great scenes when a gap in the near clouds would appear and through it you could see what looked like massive snowy mountain ranges behind. While those were clouds too for a minute you could imagine you were in the Himalaya.|

|... at least that's what getting up to Faifield felt like. It was the penultimate day of my trip to the Lake District, but tomorrow there would be no more hiking, as I had to catch a plane.|
I had come from Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike and Dollywagon Pike and spent a few leasurely hours at the tarn, preparing a nice warm lunch and having a cuppa to finish off the last of my fuel.
After that, I went up Fairfield and followed the ridge over Hart Crag, Dove Crag and beyond, all the way to lake Windermere.
By the way, I had a really excellent meal at The Log House in Ambleside.

|Part of a grand round that started with early start on Pinnacle Ridge, up St Sunday, over to Farfield, down to Grisedale Tarn (where a lovely Lady was taking an early morning dip - after the coldest May on record!) and finally to Helvellyn and down Striding Edge.|
