Backpacking with Markus - A Few More Pictures

Many thanks Martin for your motivating company and your generosity!

A shame that the inclement weather and my leaking boots prevented our planned forays on higher ground.

It's a pleasure, Markus, and the only summit that we missed due to your wet foot was Sron Smeur, a small hill with a great viewpoint - remember to climb it next time you are in the area! Our other 'missed summits' can be regarded as 'mist summits' not worth visiting in the conditions.
A successful and most enjoyable trip with no major incidents, despite your flapping tent material at Lubnaclach...
