Red deer hinds and calves
The new path looking back from just below the CIC
And looking ahead
Brocken SpectreI grabbed the fine weather opportunity to get out and go for a brisk bash up Tower Ridge this morning. I've had a cold for the past few days and really felt the after effects on the uphills. On the walk in I found myself on the new path just below the CIC Hut and stopped to watch 3 red deer hinds and their calves grazing. As I hit the ridge the cloud briefly boiled in around me and I was crossing the arete above the chimney out of the Douglas Boulder Gap when the sun came back out to cast my shadow as a great brocken spectre in Coire na Ciste below.
Tomorrow begins a busy 3 weeks of NGB courses in Glasgow and Lochaber.
