Slow for fallen leaves - don't let the view distract you
As it descends into Roybridge, the fell road from Glen Roy turns into a leafy lane, but still narrow. The autumn colours are very distracting in the low afternoon sunlight, but this is the last bend before the end, with a short steep downhill past the church just ahead. It would be a shame to be distracted just as a big truck came up the hill towards you, and it's not that unusual for kayakers running their shuttle for the Roy gorge to meet large vehicles on this road, so watch out - grade 4 paddling isn't the only hazardous part of a day out on the river ! Fortunately, I was walking, so had time to step aside when needed, and could hear the tractors and vans from some distance away, giving me plenty of time to stop and take photographs.
