Great photos, mountainboy. I think after your 100th, you need to do the two your Dad's already done so you can catch up - I'm sure he won't mind doing them again!

Nice one :D

Did you take a photo of the bridge at Derry Lodge? If so it might be the last of that particular bridge. And you are definitely one of the people to cross it!
