Ascent – 1167m. Distance – 21km
But forgot to turn on Strava first thing (doh!) so probably add about 100m and 5km
Up at 530 for a Sublime dawn.
Images taken on Panasonic G9 with Leica 12-60mm. Unprocessed.
Solar panel recharged battery which had in turn recharged camera and phone last night. Slightly smug & v pleased on this.
Beautiful morning high walk in the foothills before a hunt for water – when found the rain began. Along with huge thunder and lightening.
iPhone image – me sheltering under a picnic table waiting for rain to stop.
Mixed sun and drizzle accompanied a long haul to 1500m where I now camp amongst a humbling beech forest.
iPhone image – humbling beech forest!
Thunder rumbles on though a ways off. Can’t entirely say I want it any nearer! Also Signs of wild boar but old so let’s hope they haven’t returned – this spot would have been in snow 2 weeks ago!
Only 100m to summit in morning. Then an alongy bit. Nice. If the thunder stops!
In bed by 7:30pm. Tired, so all for now. (Note to self – don’t spit camelback tube under sleeping bag with me on top of u want to stay dry!)
