Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

A weekend among the Cairngorms

22nd March 2010

It was the feeling of a developing rut that triggered it and a ride on the Caledonian Sleeper that got me there but, if that was what was needed to get me out among snow streaked hills and under snow blanketed summits, then it did the job well. Though I met with hefty (rain) showers in the middle of the day on Saturday, I am inclined to think that I might have gone where drier weather was more plentiful. After two postings regarding cycling, it was time that some walking ones made their appearance on here, and there was a good deal of that before I came south again. As luck would have it, the bike now has a puncture, so that needs a repair. Serves me right for taking a shortcut through the woods on the way home on Friday. As seems to be my wont with these things, more is to follow and, hopefully, I’ll avoid my near habitual dallying with this one.
