Almost all Scotland under rain...no much places to chose that day. Ben Chonzie is my almost local hill, no the best forecast even there, but after a rain shower in the morning some promising dry forecast until another - hevier rain afternoon...so timing for the Munro walk was important...not early, but no late ! :roll: :lol:

We did not expect anything special from Ben Chonzie, started walk down and we would be probably quickly back in the car park, but.......

...We discovered a place with snow , we turned there...and we had a lot of fun in the snow...also a lot of time spent there ! :lol: :D :lol: :lol:
