Indian summer?

Today it was hot! Bill has been waiting for a good weather day when I was free to fulfill a long standing ambition to climb Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis. He picked the right day! After a blustery breezey walk in we enjoyed a hot and calm walk down with Maggie- Bill's wife- who had walked up the pony track to meet us. On the way down we passed plenty of charity walkers. There were large groups from Help for Heroes and a couple of hundred Asian men walking up to raise money for the Pakistani flood victims.
Awesome weather, better than any day in September, and Bill did great for a 67 year old!
