|The Lochaber hills yesterday|
Crofters need a day off and a day out from time to time.. Yesterday we made a slow start by taking the gondola up on to Aonach Mor where could start a walk at 650 m above sea level, above the clouds and in the sun.
Even if you are a Polar explorer when you get to 65 you have to start the new mountain season slowly. The "Explorer" and myself weren't feeling too energetic. . We strolled along to the viewpoint at Meall Beag where photographs were taken then a plod up the ridge in knee deep snow indicated that a coffee was needed.
Time spent on reconnaissance is never wasted so we'll return on a long,hot June day to complete the two Munros, Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag.
