'What would the world be were it bereft
of wetness and wild and wildness and wet...
long live the weeds and the wilderness yet!'
It was a bit like that in the Cairngorms today on day 1 of a Glenmore Lodge Summer Mountain Leader Assessment that I'm working this week. The weather was wild and wet at the Cas car park level but improved as we descended back to the Lodge via a number of river crossings and emergency scenarios.
