TGOC 2022 day 2

Woke with a very stiff back and creaky knees. Not good but three Tylenol and some gentle shuffling about got things moving again. Saw no reason to change strategy, so shortly after 9 I was off again heading east down the road and that was most of the rest of the day really.

The wind was at my back so I didn’t see the showers coming, and I guess we had about four during the day.

Glen Shiel is quiet attractive so it was easy on the eyes. The traffic wasn’t too bad, and there was always a verge to get on to in face of on coming traffic. While the verge was often wide euro walk on it was usually very soft/wet, so it was easier to walk on the road, and just step onto the verge when traffic was coming.

Looking back to the Inn

All the while I was monitoring Ron and Peters progress on the other side of the ridge. They started earlier than me, at 7! They also sensibly decided to deviate from the route I had designed, keeping of the tops. I will here how it worked out for them when we met up tomorrow.

View at Elevenses . I have to walk to the end of that loch and beyond

I finally left the road and, as per plan, started heading up into the hills. I had chosen wisely as the gradient was nice and gentle , suitable for my condition. Around 4 I got here and found it was as good for camping as I hoped. Peter and Ron stopped about 3 k back of me.

iPhone camera lenses managed to get misted up. One is now sort of clear, but it looks like just wide angle pictures for a while.

A nice rainbow to close out the daylight

  1. Beautiful pics, Michael, but sounds rough, although very quiet surroundings, far from the maddening crowds of TO! Hope your bod will feel better.
