So Gail announced on Sunday morning that we were getting stuck in a rut, always going to the same places for our weekend walks, and today we would explore somewhere different. She had been consulting one of her favourite websites, www.walkhighlands.co.uk
, and decided that the 'Correen Hills circuit, near Alford
' would be a good route to try.
I looked with interest at the description, and was rather disappointed to learn that the walk had a 'Bog Factor' of only two, out of a possible score of five.
(You may need to biggify the image below).
Gail tried to tell me that I'd misunderstood the scoring system and that when it comes to Bog Factor, low is good, but that can't possibly be right can it?
Anyway, it was a super day for a hill walk, warm and sunny with almost no wind, so off we set. Soon Gail was muttering about "Bog Factor of just two, my wet foot! They must have come here in the Permian Era, when Scotland was a desert."
I think you will see from the pictures below that she had a point.
Personally, I thought it was all good.
Bog Factor sounds like 'dip in freezing stream' before getting in the car....just sayin'. We think it looks great. Bella would especially love it. SHe goes through every puddle she can find.ReplyDelete
You are so right about the freezing stream...Delete
It does look beautiful Bertie, if a trifle soggy (!) under paw?ReplyDelete
Loves and licky kisses

If that's a 2, what's a 5?ReplyDelete
I bet someone snitched 3 bog plants from the descriptio on that way... maybe it's a good idea to pack a snorkel in your back pack...just in case?ReplyDelete
HAH Whitley beat me to it... still and all... a pretty good wander, methinks...after all it had the one thing they can never measure.... SUN FACTOR!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
We never bothered checking the "bog factor" when we were hiking in Arizona. Rattlesnake factor, now that was always checked . Anyway. You had a good time. Gail had a good time? That's the really important "factor"ReplyDelete
Gail was wearing her waterproof hiking boots and had a great time!Delete
