Yesterday was our beloved founder’s birthday, so here’s a photo of him and me contributing to the ice at the top of Glencoe Ski Centre back in 2012. Happy Birthday Chris!
Well, the weather has started to get a bit nicer. There’s still snow on the hills, though, so as a hopeful last goodbye to winter here’s Harry weeing on a waterfall. Specifically this is Steall falls a couple of winters ago when they were completely frozen. Hopefully it’ll be a while till we see it like this again!
I went and rode my bike up on High Street on Monday and it reminded me of this scenic pee from up there back in 2013. I think this was taken by Rosie and while it looks like I’m weeing at great height into Haweswater below there is, fortunately, a big old gap between me and it. I don’t think I can force out a mile long stream….
Not sure if you’ll have seen Top Gear last night but it starred a pretty bold scenic pee from Richard Hammond, seen here relieving himself on Wolf Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Not much of a stream, but I don’t think scenic peeing is really pre-watershed material so I’m sure they did the best they could. He was also worried about what would happen if a bear came along whilst he was doing it, a valid point- be careful of bears when you have your winkie out.
Bit of a sad one this week- another avalanche claimed a victim, Max Norman, in Torridon over the weekend, and this week’s scenic pee is posted in his memory. It makes sense, then, for it to star our beloved founder Chris in this textbook display of an exemplary stream in spiffing scenery in the French Alps which was taken by Huw Oliver while they were working for Bike Village, who apparently do some pretty sweet holidays out there.
Stay safe in those lovely mountains everyone!
An exciting start to the year on scenicpees- a submission from the continent. This is Bernhardt, who took this photo, which, by the way for a first time submission is perfect- good stream etc., last winter in the Slovenian alps near the border to Austria. Looks good, and a good way to brace yourself for the impending weather doom coming to the UK later this week.
