- Black Magic Mountain -
Up on the Suilven in northern Scotland we had a really tough night. Freezing temperatures and heavy wind that was shaking our little bivouacs. The next morning awaited us with wonderful light and dark clouds. Worth it!
When we were coming up on the boat, I whispered to myself "I know these jungles" with a stern look upon my face. A weathered looking man (that could have easily passed off as a South African mercenary) behind me in the boat grabbed my shoulder, slowly pulling me back and said "Did you know the movie Predator was filmed in those jungles over there?" as he points. I didn't look at the man, I kept my gaze fixed towards the lush greenery, pursed my lips and gently nodded. And to think they thought they could put the lot of us in the meat grinder.
