New year,new bothy,new mountain

A brief trip to western Snowdonia with my pal Andrew ,based for two nights at Cae-Amos which was newly renovated by the MBA in early 2017.
Also on hand Mynydd Graig Coch which became a "proper mountain" in 2008 after re-measurement found it to just exceed the magic 2000 feet mark by 6 inches.
We timed our visit to take advantage of the reasonably warm weather after the poor spell leading up to Xmas.

El Hierro and Tenerife November - December 2017

Usually I've combined visits to Tenerife with La Gomera but on this occasion decided that a trip to El Hierro was long overdue.
Saw a variety of high plateau and coastal landscapes on my walks and proportionally perhaps more farming and other agricultural activity than on the other islands?
On Tenerife I did some more of the Anaga paths and had a first look at the area above La Orotava with a walk north to south over the cumbre on the Camino de Candelaria.

Costa Blanca Trail running Abdet

A trail running week based at Abdet in the Costa Blanca mountains.Only a few miles inland from Benidorm but could have been on a different planet.
A select group from Dallam Running Club ,with our hosts Tom and Penny http://www.abdet.com/ who are also members.
Some great local run/walks from the door and others within an hour's drive.

I didn't have my own map so might update the album text when one is available.

JMT Tanera Mor workparty September 2017

Some photos from the recent John Muir Trust workparty which I've been on.
Tanera Mor is the largest of the Summer Isles which are off the north west coast of Wester Ross north of Ullapool.
Work including path improvements,beach cleaning and tree planting. Fortunate to have a fairly dry spell and not be too troubled by the midges.
