July 23rd, 2018
Mist, drizzle and few photographs
Hidden Valley, Bidean nam Bian, Stob Coire nan Lochan, Aonach Dubh

Poor Weather
A misty day making it feel humid and unpleasant inside Hidden Valley ascending to the bealach. It was better once on the ridge with the wind but it brought drizzle with it

Very little visibility until descending west side Stob Coire nan Lochan before reaching Aonach Dubh

A pleasant day nonetheless

Path out of Hidden Valley obscured in mist
Steam off to west as path starts to climb
View down into Hidden Valley starting to appear
No views at top of Stob Coire Sgreamhach
Top of path from Hidden Valley
No views at the top of Bidean nam Bian either
