Mountains



Here's a UCD expedition wrapped up warm at the peak of Ben Nevis.
[ It was cold, and windy, with too much falling and blowing snow for the camera lens. ]

Three happy, intelligent, personable young USA folk - from New York, California and the mid-West.

[UCD = University College, Dublin]


at the peak



There's also a good memory of us all celebrating with a meal and stuff at Paddy's Bar way down below in Fort William that evening.

N.b. I'd discovered that bar the previous evening, after my fellows had gone to bed early in preparation for a hard day's climb - Ha!

We were an international party - 3 Americans, 2 English, a New Zealander, and an ex-pat Welshman (me), along with Paddy the bar-owner and the regular Scots, who all gave us an evening of good talk, music, food, drink and song.  All evenings should all be like that.


Below is another mountain top (Snowdon, in Wales) and - typical of Wales - you get to the top, and someone's preaching at you.


a Welsh mountain


here's the preaching in close-up below - in Cymraeg (Welsh), English, French (& unknown) language.



sermon

"Wanderer, stop awhile and think of the marvellous works of God and of your short passage on Earth"






Come to think of it - have spent some time on mountains in different parts of the world, sometimes for personal relaxation, sometimes to provide exercise for others, sometimes as military work.
