The End of the Road

The End of the Road
It had been a lovely walk in beautiful weather. After a couple of hours of hard work we reached the top. It would have been nice if there had been a lovely summit cairn and perhaps a little wind shelter so we could sit for a while, getting our breath back and drinking in the view.

But no. There was an ugly grey concrete trig point and a scrubby, dried up lake. A cold wind blew over a summit devoid of any shelter or place to sit. So we trudged on, pausing only to take a photo to remind us of a great walk.

I did a 3.5 mile kike once to Headquarters Pass on top the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains, when arriving to the top the views were splendid and vast. The problem was the winds were so strong I could barely stand let alone take pictures. Still a memorable experience!

A lovely shot and at least the walk was great, Dave. I just clicked your site when a sound at the window in this upstairs room drew my attention to it. There was a magpie on the window sill. I grabbed my camera but of course I was far too slow for it. First I saw 3 of them flying away at my appearance, across next door garden then a superb detailed view of the original one on our bathroom flat roof just below this window. So pretty but----Bloomin' magpies. The reason for small birds in our garden being such a rarity.

Chuckled at your apparent disappointment when reading your description...you have a way with words. It looks lovely up there, all the same. Smashing pic, with that sky and the heather in flower. Nice one!
