In like a lion, out like a lamb [in a day]

22nd March 2023

Gravity defying waterfalls are always a good indication on what kind of day lies ahead.  This morning was extremely wet and extremely windy – in fact, I had to abandon my plan to Bealach na Bà due to stone damage on the car.  Thankfully, the winds gradually subsided, the cloud lifted and I was able to see the mountains.  Snow lies down to c.700m and is shallow and mainly on unfrozen ground.  One of the biggest challenges today was separating the ribbons of snow from overflowing water courses – of which there are many.
