Last February we went walking on Gumuş dağ with Zirve Mountaineering club. It poured with rain and there are pictures of us looking like drowned rats, trying to get a fire going. Last Sunday the exercise was repeated, in much better weather. The walk was defined as ‘medium difficulty’ and there was a certain amount of scrambling involved.
We opted to join the picnic group rather than the younger and fitter group (including two children) who were headed for the summit.
We got lost. I think they got lost. We ended up having a very long lunch break in a rather attractive spot. And we didn’t get back to the coach till dark.
It was a brilliant walk, quite challenging, with some great views and good company.
