Central Gully, Coire an t-Sneachda





The purpose of today was for Carron and I to get ourselves back into winter mode! We walked into Coire an t-Sneachda with nothing more definite planned than to enjoy the day and to be back downbefore the strong winds came in which were forecast for later in the day.
We watched the spindrift flying off the Fiacaill Ridge which looked very picturesque, just a pity I forgot my camera. We wandered up to the Trident area then continued our wandering up Central Gully. The snow was good if deep in places and there were lots of icy steps to enjoy.
Back down in Aviemore before the wind picked up and enjoying mince pies and tea when we found out that Ron had tried to join us but his car slid off the road so he had to "ditch" his day. (I know, very bad joke!) The car is now out of the undergrowth, back on the road and appears to be none the worse for its 360 degree spin.
Thanks to Carron for emailing the photos.
