Breaking through (not)

19th January 2019

(Above) The Meagaidh range in the distance – bright and crisp this morning, as I headed to its Western edge and Beinn a Chaorainn.

(Above) The East facing bowls of Beinn a Chaorainn. My destination for the day – the central gully, at around cloud level! Yesterday’s venture to the Eastern end of the Meagaidh range had not found any significant accumulations – my thoughts were this collecting bowl on Beinn a Chaorainn would perhaps be more fruitful………..

(Above) Found some ice in the bowl’s upper reaches – any snow however was lying mostly just on bare ground at 850m.

(Above) The enjoyment of the ‘bright and crisp’ required breaking thru a cloud inversion.

(Above) Creag Meagaidh’s broad Western col of Bealach a Bharnish sitting at about 800m – showing  the blue clear skies above & beyond.

(Above) …there was little for the camera to work with I’m afraid

(Above) ….until that is on the way home (of course!)  The Glenfeshie hills looked to have been out of any cloud and clear for the day -typical! East was best….
