The wheater was rainny the day before so there was lot of mud but we didnt care much. Me ,my dad ,my uncle and my friend did go there in a car. We leave the car park and started walking towards the gate to ben lomond we had a map that i printed, so we started our experience, we walked up the rocks some of them was really slippy, the journey up the mountain did really gave us an impression we needed to take a break every 20 minutes but im still really happy that i did that
when we did get very high i felt like i was in heaven because it was really white that you could hardly see and you could fell down, when we get to the top we did see a lot of people there sitting on rocks talking and eating so we thought that we going to take a break here too , when we finished eating we did started to walking down, the rocks were really dangerous because if you would take a bad step you could fell and hurt yourself or even die so we looked safely where we taking our steps when we did walk down the white cloud disappeared and we saw that the wheater changed to sunny and we saw a beautiful view
so we did go down the hill, my friend did fell to the ground because of the mud he was angry because his trousers did have mud on them, but anyway we did get to the end of the trail :D i said to my dad 'WE DID IT ' i was so happy because that was my first munro, when we walked to the car park we saw something interesting, it was a monument we looked around and we did go back to car park.This is it my great exeperience of ben lomond
now lets wait until christmas past and get ready for another munros ! :wink:
