Marilyn's rest day
I have said before that I can tolerate walking in the rain providing I am wearing good gear, and views, even if only intriguing glimpses, are possible.
This morning I drove to SX 158 800 the starting point for Brown Willy (please, no jokes - I've thought of too many unpublishable ones as a title for this post). Visibility was down to about a hundred yards and it was sheeting with rain. I hung around for nearly an hour sat in the car and then returned to the caravan.
Whilst I am motivated to climb as many Marilyn's as I can, I know I will never do all 2016, so there is not the pressure experienced with the Munros or the Corbetts when you know completion is attainable. I am pretty sure that if Brown Willy had been one of the last, say twenty Munros, I would have been up there walking on compass bearings and feeling heroic afterwards.
I am having difficulty posting with the iPad. I can' get Blogpress to work with photos. This is coming by email.Sent from my iPad
