It was a character building expedition and
many thanks to Ken for all the hard work he put in finding us
somewhere to go where there was enough snow.
We set off from the Linn of Dee noting the
warnings from the SRoWS
But Despite the warnings and the prospect
of finding out of what it feels like to spend the night in a
slush machine we were still in good spirits when we reached
White Bridge (note the smiling faces)
The 'modern art' was still there, I wonder
if it will last the winter.
By the time I pulled up onto the ridge the
rest of the team were hard at work.
I was soon down and digging, eventually
having a hole to call home.
All mod cons
Sue was also snug next door cooking her
The view just as I went to bed, note the
snow and the shovel handle.
After a very comfortable night Ken came
round to wake me from my slumbers, informing me that every one
else was moving. Reluctantly I extracted my self from a warm
sleeping bag and had a look out of my hole to see the fresh snow
around the shovel handle.
A day time view.
Ben and Ivan on Carn Cloich-mhuilinn
But the views on the way down were not
The Devil's Point and the Lairg Ghru.
A spot of lunch.
The final look back to where we had just
spent the night.
Another great trip, thanks to everyone for
making it so.
