Instead of making the original post even slower, Just thought I'd add an extension.

scotsman--

Whilst I love the Brooks Range, and therefore the wonderful pix from Ovis, I can testify to the beauty of your country too. So. Please send photos yourself! Regarding wildlife, try to wow us with some shots of stags. And perhaps some of those stunning shaggy bovines that inhabit your highlands. (I realize they aren't exactly "wild", but they sure LOOK pretty wild.)

Just a few pictures from my first trip out in my 4 man teepee in Scotland. Unfortunately the weather turned after I set up camp so no good scenery shots but it did give a good test to the teepee and stove and it has to be the most comfortable night I have spent in the Scottish Highlands in the winter.

Base camp for the weekend

Enough firewood for 5 hours

Part way through the night and the stove is going great

The stags came down from the hills in the morning and I was lucky enough to get a few shots of them with my camera

Sorry Patrick no Highland Cattle on this trip, maybe next time.

Scotsman, thank you for some very nice photographs! May I ask, what is the low growing plant in the foreground of the last photo? It has a very pretty purple tone to it. Post any more pictures and I might be forced to pour myself a single-malt!

ocspray,

I am currently at FLW, MO and all I have to say is don't complain...there are a lot flatter places...I grew up in FL. The hills here are awesome compared to there. Now, I am not saying that I don't want to get out to those places, but this place is a lot better then where I am from. You can at least use terrain association on a map, try doing that in FL.

PM Sent also.

SDJ,

I've killed a whole bunch of wild turkeys not too far from where you're at in years past. Good country. I know what you mean about terrain association...try doing a land nav course in Louisiana. We had to tie a flag (old t shirt) onto a long tree branch and hold it up over our heads so the partner could shoot a 10-meter azimuth through the jungle. Sucks. At least at FLW you have some oak brush.

Ovis and Scotsman, I'm a little late here. Great pictures form both of you. Totally different pic's, a third of the way around the planet from each other. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed them both.

Scotsman, I never realized the country was like that there(stag pic's).

Glad you liked the pictures, I have put together some from a couple of weekends ago of some of the Scottish hills, slightly different countryside from last weekend.
To answer your questions, the plant in the foreground of the last picture is Heather, I am not really up on types of Heather as it is so common in Scotland it basically covers the hills here.
The axe is a Gransfors small forest axe, I also have a Wetterlings and find them equally as good.

This is a picture taken from Ben More the second highest hill in Scotland at just over 4000feet, alot smaller than anything you have in the Rockies but still challenging in these conditions.

This is Beinn Dubhcraig about 1 hours drive from Glasgow and on the way to Glen Coe.

This is looking down one of the Glens not far from Loch Lomond, Scotlands largest Loch (Lake).

Hope to take some more pictures of my Teepee in Scotland throughout the year and look forward to seeing some more of your country through your pictures.

Mike- Awesome pictures...thanks. I just picked up a Wetterlings hatchet yesterday...went out back and chopped up some blowdowns with it. I'm very impressed. A small forest axe is next on the list.

Keep the pic's coming...I should be getting some new ones to post in a week or two.

Mike, Ditto Ovis and Ken's comments, great pictures. Its plenty rugged looking to me, 400 feet, ice and snow; and watch your footing.

I went to your homepage <a href="http://www.scottishknives.co.uk" target="_blank">http://www.scottishknives.co.uk (http://www.scottishknives.co.uk)</a> Very nice knives you have there (and fire starter).


Ovis, Any other pic's of the Brooks range? I'm assuming it was a hunting trip.

Smackdaddyj- For whatever reasons, I have not received your PM. And yes, I agree that this area is not too bad, but back in the old days, I spent a lot of time in the CO Rockies and would like to get back. I have also spent a few months at General Wood's resort, back in the old days.

Outstanding pix, just what I'd hoped you'd produce. I wasn't kidding when I said Scotland had magnificent scenery, eh Lads?
