    Yesterday evening, whilst my son was swimming, I went for an exploratory walk up to Axe Edge to checkout its trods. My only other visits have been in the dark and/or clag and I was pleasantly surprised by the all round views.
    The two best ones were of the once seen never forgotten outlines of Chrome Hill and Shutlingsloe, both looking fantastic in the beautiful evening sunshine.

    Sightings of Lapwing, Curlew, Grouse and Skylark topped off a very well spent hour.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    9.80 miles, 2,921 feet, 2 hours 40 minutes: Loughrigg trails. Overcast with the occasional spell of sunshine and a few brief wintry showers. Waterproof top not used, and I even got down to my vest. No significant wind at this height. Terrain very variable - from dry to damp to saturated. Not many about. 1 cuckoo - I heard 1 yesterday as well, near Roundhill Farm.

    You're not wrong there, I was staggered the first time I saw Chrome Hill. Do you have a photo to share with us?

    6.8 miles, 3,470 feet, 2 hours 23 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 2 sides, including twice up and three times down the race route to the kissing gate. Cloudy, sunshine at times, intermittent drizzle, no significant wind. Terrain anything from dry to saturated. Did not use my waterproof top - got down to my vest for the last mile or so. Not many about.

    9.07 miles, 2,546 feet, 2 hours 36 minutes: Loughrigg trails, including 2 routes - one a 4WD track, the other a walking path - that I had not been on before. Overcast, main cloud base at about 1,400 feet, but patches of mist lower down; constant light to moderate rain, no significant wind. All over waterproof kit worn throughout, with hood up. Terrain wet/saturated. Quite a few runners about lower down. Direction markers - white arrows on a blue background - on the fell - there is clearly an event on.

    Turns out it is "The Lap", a 47 mile trail route around Windermere - 80 to enter!
