OK, you're here. It was only Ben Challum!!! Another one "in the can" for me. My "57th" individual Munro, and my, what a "variety" there has "beanz".

Good for you and the 57 different varieties. This was only the 2nd Munro I did, and nobody had told me about 2nd and bigger summits. I refused to climb another hill that weekend and spent the extremely hot day in the burn instead. That's when I thought I had all the time in the world.

You'll be hitting the century before you know it! Nice photos - especially the one with the clouds just ever so gently kissing the tops of Ben More and Stob Binnein. :D
