Name of walk Loughrigg Fell
Date of walk 2007-02-14

I asked Janet and her dog Poppy if they wanted a jaunt out, which they did, so after a bit of retail therapy and a large Mocha we set off round the west side of Grasmere to go up Loughrigg Fell (1099ft) and then down the other side to Loughrigg Tarn and back again.
