I agree Joyce - the lichen's beautiful
Yesterday's slightly curtailed jaunt to Glen Nevis - doing only one of The Mamores - Stob Ban - instead of the intended two..
Weather wasn't too promising all the way - especially approaching Glencoe. The iconic 'Bookil' (Stob Dearg) is in there...honest!
The famous waterfall in Glen Nevis - The Grey Mare's Tail . Boots off and a paddle across the bottom of that is necessary to get onto the hill path
Looking back down into Glen Nevis. The Ben shrouded in cloud, though it cleared briefly later on.
Pano of the second Munro I should have done-Mullach nan Coirean, showing the subsidiary tops and ridge leading to it's summit (centre of pic) with Ben Nevis on the right of pic
Part of the ridge from the top of the first bit of ascent - good scramble at the far end before dropping down to the bealach and making the final ascent to the summit
Pano from the same spot - the summit on the right of that ridge, and the continuing walk to the right of that. On the left - part of the Ring of Steall, a famous circular walk of several of the Mamores
Summit views: looking back to the scrambly ridge - I've got to go back over that b****r! The two Aonachs in the background (left) and the Grey Corries on the right
The Grey Corries, with 'the other' Stob Ban
Pano of Stob Ban and the ridge to the second Munro - Mullach nan Coirean, the highest looking peak near the right, although it's the smaller of the two hills
Heading back down - Ben Nevis clear, with the point of Carn Mor Dearg to it's right, and the famous arete joining them
The scoured rocks of the gorge - centuries of snow, ice and water creating the beautiful 'holes'
Plenty of folk on these well walked hills - and I had the right guys parked next to me...
