Second time

Route: Ben Donich, via Rest and Be Thankful

Corbetts: Ben Donich

Date walked: 02/07/2020

Distance: 7.5km

For the second time of hiking up this hill, i was hopeful of some reward for my efforts. Sadly, the low cloud was still around the summit, even though it did clear in places to get a view of some sort. The first time i did it, i couldn't see my hand in front of my face with the cloud & the weather changed so quickly to extremely cold, and i mean really quick. (It was November though!) I did notice the temperature drop again dramatically today when on the summit, but the sun came out during the decent to add some heat into us.
Due to the lockdown, this was my first hike of the season. The main pathway up the hill was really quite boggy & the sheep seemed surprised to see someone due to the lockdown. lol.
Anyway, its still a decent hike, quite a few false summits as you usually expect, but pleasurable none the less. Ultimately, It beats daytime telly!
