Others at first couldn't make up their minds what to do. But then found a sense of direction.

One or two were on a slippery slope. And some just couldn't take it any longer!

The Assynt field trip was the first big field trip, and probably the one most of us remember the best. Most of the time was spent mapping Quinag in the horizontal rain watching the waterfalls on the mountain opposite flow uphill. Out of the 12 days we were there it rained at least for some of the day on 8 of the days and on the last day it snowed.

As well as the days spent on the hill there were a few days where we went on trips to see other places such as Badcall Bay (where many of the above photos were taken) and Clachtoll.

Myra and Suzy had a fun time.. especially when the hotel cook sleep-walked into their room and fell asleep again under one of their beds.

Note: Myra's hair has changed... it's now pink all over, except for the roots.
