I love this picture of him. Why is he puzzling over that map? That was the day we were climbing Beinn Dampf. It was extremely foggy, and I believe Shaun was verifying how much farther it was to the top since we couldn't see it from there.
And below getting pictures of each of us at the waterfall on Beinn Eighe--another part of the job: official photographer for the trip (until he met me and my camera.)
Part medic (here he's making quick use of his first aid kit--we won't mention who stabbed herself in the knee) and part mountain goat checking the trail ahead.
And when his family stopped in the area and he got a visit with his dog, we got to see a different side of Shaun. He misses the kids and the dog when he's out on a guiding job.
Shaun was guiding us for Walkabout Scotland on this trip, and has his own guiding company TreadinGround where he specializes in really tailoring the trip to the group. If you want an outdoor experience in Scotland, you can't go wrong with either of them.
