Re: Ben Aigan & Knock More, capped with a Findhorn beach sunset

Ooh! We remember the beach at Findhorn.
If you look far enough you'll see the Orkneys and Shetlands? (Well, no, Wick's in the way, but you get my drift).
Even put our feet in the North Sea... it was cold.

And for some reason I think of Macbeth...
Cawdor?

Re: USA-Zion National Park-Pine Creek Slot Canyon

Wow! What a pretty canyoning trip. Took me back a long time.
It's a great and exhilarating sport (when the water's not too high... otherwise it's a fatal sport).
That Pine Creek Slot Canyon is a beautiful setting.

Re: Bla Bheinn - a bit like a pint of Guinness

Graeme, do you have any pics towards Sgurr na Stri? On the day we climbed it, we were thinking of Blaven, but realised we'd see absolutely nothing (well, the inside of a clag bottle), so decided to stay below the cloud.* Great views of Glen Sligachan. I must get back there... some day. * In fact, wh...

Wow! That's a stunning place.
With all the physical beauty and spiritual heritage, it must have been quite a visit.

Re: Glen Nevis circuit in the snow

Wow! Lovely to see those, HSC. Weird to see the Poll. Falls frozen over. Is this an unusually cold winter? Where was the beer shot taken? At the pub at Achintee, I hope! We watered there several times (well, twice), whilst staying at Achintee Farm in September. Great pub, with lots of instruments fo...

Re: Time we had a Scottish Waterfalls Post!;-)

Indeed, you are correct. In fact there is a description of it with a similar photo!
I do seem to remember Black Spout or Blackwater or something, though.

Re: Rain!

I get the feeling that the amount of rain was unanticipated by the weather bureau?

Rain!

I've seen some astounding reports on the rainfall in Cumbria, Wales and Scotland.
I hope none of our highland walkers got caught out (or worse) in that weather.

Re: everest base camp and kala pattar

That's a great trek. A classic.
Bring back lots of photos.

Re: Kanangra to Katoomba, NSW Blue Mtns, Australia

Not enough moisture for the leeches to be out.
I think we saw one when we were at nearby Mt Solitary in April.
Sadly, leeches are becoming less of a problem as Australia continues to dry out.

Kanangra to Katoomba, NSW Blue Mtns, Australia

1-3 Nov 2009, while an early-season heatwave was hitting NSW, we walked 44km in 1 and two half days in 35 degree C temperatures. One thing about the Blue Mountains: when you are ‘up on top’, there is little water about... http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2663/4105800660_cd7cceec0c_m.jpg http://farm3.s...

Re: Beinn Alligin

mc, we did the Horns in quite claggy weather and really had no problems with it, but do note that at one stage you do need to look carefully for the route, but it was all an easy clamber for us. I imagine that the route would be easier to find in good weather, though the drops on either side would b...
