Out of the blue almost, a perfect summer day at last. I managed a relatively quick scramble up to Red Screes via Kilnshaw Chimney (note – it’s a scramble up that way, not a walk) and then headed out to Middle Dodd. It was a perfect day to be on the fells today, not too hot, not too cold but just right (a Goldilocks day?!).
