Alpine trek

August 18

This trek with Jim Thorne is for photographers who wish to capture dramatic landscapes.  It will also interest those into birds (bring a telephoto lens with good ‘reach’), wildflowers & other plants (a macro lens can be useful if you own one).  The terrain near the summit is cloaked in heather and  dwarf alpine forest & is generally easy to walk over, and there is a road to follow if you wish.

Sturdy footwear is recommended (though you don’t need to have heavy-duty boots), as is a water and windproof Gore-Tex type jacket.  Bring a lunch and bug spray.  This location is worthwhile even if the weather is less than perfect.
