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

From left to right: Milan, Mark, Helen, Kathleen, Dengli, Chris, and Bruno. Photo taken by Andrew or Roman.

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

Someday I shall start a rock band and it will be called Continuity of Hats
