Just a quick note to let you know that I successfully finished my 180+ mile TGO Challenge hike across Scotland this morning on the east coast in Montrose. This was a fantastic experience and I am eager to return and do it again.
I'll write up a detailed trip report when I get back to the states in a few days, but we had fantastic weather for the crossing with just a few days of intermittent rain east of the Great Glen. I sucessfully summitted the beautiful mountain of Lochnagar, climbing through snow and foot deep snowmelt, and then descending past stunning waterfalls to the awesome in Glen Muick, home of the queen's private estate.
Other trip highlights included hiking through Glen Affric, Glen Feshie, past the River Eidart, through the Linn of Dee and Glen Lee. I took lots of photos along the way that I'll share with you of these fantastic sights.
Finally, I wanted to thank all of you who made donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on behalf of my trip. Together we raised over $2,000 dollars that will go to cancer research and patient education.
See you anon
