Tuesday 23 November
The forecast for Monday was for heavy rain and possible flooding all day. All we received were a few scuds that hardly wet the ground. Tuesday's forecast didn't really concern the Gaiter Girls, as we set off early, up the Beechmont, mountain road to our starting point.
The morning was cloudy and very humid. It rained prior to our arrival. Looking through the trees and across the valley, we could see a dark grey mass heading our way. Would it divert or fizzle out? We aren't concerned by showers so continued climbing upwards to the 'glorious views' mentioned in our notes.
