Daybreak over The Fiacaill Ridge and Coire an Lochain from a wind scoured Windy Ridge
Karen enjoying the early morning sun
A deserted Cairn Gorm summit but no views
Boot prints and wind erosion
Another very cold night with temperature down to -10 C in Aviemore. Karen and I had a very early quick jaunt up Cairn Gorm to escape the skiers and crowds (and to get to work later in the morning). There was a lovely rosy glow to the skies over The Cairngorms. With cloud above 1100m we didn't get any summit views. The weather did clear later in the day and it was another fine day to be out in the hills. After a spell of very fine weather with light winds and cold temperatures we will be back into a mix of 'normal' winter weather over the weekend. Strong winds, melt/freeze cycles, snowfall and the odd spell of sunshine. Waterproofs and goggles coming up!
