And the rain came! Spitting on us as we scuttled through the gravel in this moody dark valley. Someone mentioned that a point on this route was where they had set the Orc factory in Lord of the Rings … So we kept our eyes peeled for stray and escaped Orcs – just in case. You don’t want to run into one of those blood hungry things in the mountains!
So the alien cloaking cloud turned out to be the storm we’d been expecting. Didn’t really matter, Cascade Saddle was behind us now, only a couple of easy miles down the valley and we’d tucked up inside the nice warm Dart Hut.
