A good one to break me back into the Munros after Christmas! Tracks and then on open moorland covered by short vegetation, still snow covered in places.

half way up Ben Chonzie
Cant lose the path as just headed straight for the fence as detailed on this site. An easy winter route. Still had shaky legs after though! Only saw 2 of the wild hares. First Munro of the year. :lol:

Thanks guys. Wee crowd of youngster were there when we got up but at least we got a photo lol! Did Ben Lomond on Sunday past and got to approx 15 mins from the top and had to surrender :( I couldnt see a thing, it was very surreal. Never walked in anything like that before and decided to give up. Got a nice photo on the way down from Ben Lomond tho as the mist lifted and the clouds separated for a few minutes...
