#1 by astoness , Mon Sep 07, 2015 7:57 pm

had a cracking weekend weather good just a bit of rain first thing sat morning....trip to the summit was awesome..i thought i was on the moon[Little LOL] very cold and windy at the top.. took a few piccies from the window of the train but they really do not do the scenery justice..will sort a few out tomorrow and post..small detour on the way back this morning to drive over horseshoe pass...oh lordy lordy how scary was that but stunning...also spotted 2 birds of prey up there cant be sure what they were though...duck..geese and gulls surrounded the van this morning for their brekkie

You don't get many driver's speeding over horseshoe pass ,not unless they have a death wish
