Look What We Climbed Today!

Instead of crying over spilled milk or being homeless, MBA and I decided to hit the road and make the best of our lack in accommodation. We left Edinburgh on Wednesday, spent a night in Fort William, and quickly headed up to the Isle of Skye the following morning. Check out where we were this morning:
Our first climb this morning was on Quiraing on the northermost summit of the Trotternish Ridge on Skye. 

Some of it looked like this:
And the hard part looked like this:
Here I am at the top:
Do I look a bit pensive here???

It's because I was! I had just climbed a vertical ascent where both hands and feet were involved. I was a bit a freaked out!
Do you see how straight up this was!?!?

Check out our vertical ascent! I was a bit freaked out. It wasn't until after the climb that MBA told me it was for experienced hikers/climbers. What in the world was I doing up there?!!? Let me tell you for a third time: I was a bit freaked out.

But I had a great time and the view was really worth it.

 Isn't it stunning?
In the afternoon we went on a different walk, and now my legs are feeling it! MBA has plans for us to go hiking again tomorrow. I'll let you know how that goes ;)
