Mist From the East
10th April 2018
Little change in the snowpack other than it is colder today as the freezing level hovered around the highest summits with very firm snow at high levels. A cool east wind fed in low cloud through the day, breaking up over the more coastal mountains to give some good sunny spells along the coastal fringes.
The usual view of the Beinn Dearg mountains this morning from Ullapool with cloud breaking over Beinn Dearg itself.
Throughout the winter, this burn had to be crossed to allow access into the northern Fannaich mountains. At times during periods of thaw combined with heavy rain, it was in spate and impassable. Note the flotsam on the left stranded in the shrub at ‘high tide’ mark – around 2m higher than current level! An Teallach in the background.
The southern slopes of Beinn Dearg as seen through the mist. At times, the summits were clear above the low cloud. Incidentally, the burn in mid photo also has to be crossed to access the hills on the left. I’ve had to turn back more than once! Just saying……
Looking East below the cloud to Loch Droma and Loch Glascarnoch.
