The Great Cairn Hut

Great Cairn Mountaineering Trip

July 24-31, 1999

Photo Gallery

About the photos

Walter Giger provided diskettes of his photos which were included with the processing, so some of the pictures are his. My own photos were mostly slides and the developers disks did not come out as well as I'd like. Walter lost some slides due to process errors. Any photos which are not specifically attributed to Walter or myself are mine.

The categories are in some cases arbitrary, with some photos fitting into more than one. Decisions on which to put them under were mine.

For those of us who were there the pictures will hopefully spark some clearer images from our memory. For anyone not there, well you have to go on such a trip yourself to fully appreciate it - of course!
