Climbed a Cliff in the Rain Only to Come Down to Sunshine

Yesterday was Sunday, June 17th, and it was our second day in Edinburgh as a group. Overall it was a very eventful day full of adventure, but one, in particular, stood out to me. You see I am quite the nature enthusiast and specifically, I love hiking. When I think of Scotland, I think of beautiful landscapes . . . to hike on. So its easy to understand why I was so excited for our group’s end of the activity. We were going to hike up to Arthur’s Seat, the peak of a series of hills just at the edge of Edinburgh.2018-06-17 20:44:03.598 I knew that it was going to be a difficult climb but I also knew that it was going to provide for an amazing view of the city and the surrounding landscape. What I did not expect at all was for it to rain on the way up. This definitely made the climb a little more difficult with the slippery rocks and all. While I was not wrong about the climb being difficult I was also not wrong about the view. 2018-06-17 19:54:26.093When I got up to the top, it was immensely satisfying. With the view to admire and the heavy winds to cool me down from the hike, I was really loving life. As a group, we spent plenty of time at the top taking it all in and capturing plenty of photos and then we found an easier way down and took that route. Along the way, we came across some beautiful ruins and took some time to explore them.Screen Shot 2018-06-19 at 12.23.03 AM After this, we made our way back to the flats and I pretty much passed out from exhaustion, honestly I think we all did, but it was well worth it.
