Walking up to the ridge. Black Cuillins, Skye

Walking up to the ridge. Black Cuillins, Skye
Taken in September 1978. I can't for the life of me remember exactly where this was! But I have made a guess that it was above Loch Coruisk and below Sgurr Alasdair.
I think, even for 1978, the clothing and backpacks were already anti-deluvian! But then, we were VERY poor students!
Scanned from a degraded slide.

No hats, either! I also didn't wear a hat outdoors back then, but since I've started getting skin cancers--

But they then get so wet and soggy and HEAVY that they quickly become a nuisance!
Best stay indoors watching endless Simpsons re-runs, eating a healthy vegan diet but never venturing outside - it's dangerous out there, donchya know!!!
And die of a coronary aged 56!

Very beautiful view and, to my (very old) eyes, still escellent photo. My degraded slides turn red-orange, this has wonderful color.
