My climb up Ben Nevis in Scotland
Me and Auntie L. woke up to a lovely sunny summer morning. After a heavy bacon and sausage sandwich, I was ready to climb Ben Nevis – the highest mountain in the UK at 1344 metres.
I was not happy at having to carry a 35 litre backpack weighing 12 kgs. I am only 30 cms tall! I wish Auntie L. would carry her own pack.
The hike up the mountain was long and slow going. Auntie L. was not at all keeping up with me.
We stop at a waterfall halfway up and ate our peanuts. I like them.
Another check of the map (see link: http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/maps/map4_2fw.shtml) and then we proceded on. A very steep climb from here onwards and into snow. YES snow!
Auntie L. who is my adopted auntie was not keeping up with me and this made me a little annoyed *HUFF*. Anyway we got to the top and we ate our sandwiches.
Many people go up this mountain and it is a bit of a tourist trap, but it is the “BIG ONE” in the UK.
It took us about six hours for the ten miles trek.
