Scotland 2006 photos: second batch

All taken during our first big hike on Friday, this series of photos shows a bit of the majesty of the Scottish highlands.

Scottish peak

There is really no mistaking the glacial origins of these mountains, though the erosion patterns of the rocks look quite unusual to someone used to mountains in British Columbia.

Three peaks we climbed

These are three of the five peaks we climbed on Friday, including at least one of the three Munros.

Descending path

While requiring less exertion, descents were often rather more daunting than ascents.

Study in lichen

Continuity of hats is an important element of hiking trips.

Group photo

With tutorials tomorrow, I need to get some sleep. More photos and descriptions of the trip should come online tomorrow.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
