The Tail End Of Winter?

After attending a fairly demanding winter mountaineering course last weekend, and then following this up with four days of intensive horse riding, a straightforward hill day was definitely in order. So we decided on a shortish jaunt – up Glen Callater then onward to Carn an Tuirc and Cairn of Claise. Winter is definitely in retreat –  there was very little snow underfoot. The main photo shows some lying on the high Eastern Cairngorm plateaus, while the odd cornice was still clinging to various precipitous edges. Of course, it’s still only March and winter could yet return with a vengeance…. watch this space…..DSCF1734DSCF1730slide4
