Overview - Haystacks via Fleetwith Pike

On Saturday, May 2nd, the weather cleared and I was able to hike Alfred Wainwright's favorite fell -- Haystacks, which is outside of Buttermere, Cumbria, UK in the Lake District a little north of Wordsworth country. I put new batteries in my GPS so that there is a good track of the entire hike, which was more than 11 miles. If you follow the link from the thumbnail on your left, it will take you to the Motionbased player set. From there you can set the mileage and elevation stats (over 4,000 ft elevation gain) and even "play" the walk in one of the players. (Motionbased favors an SVD player which is typically an Internet Explorer plug-in - but there are players enough for everyone.)
