What an amazing part of the world. This is wilderness at its best & a place that everyone should visit at least once.

I recently paid my respects at Mount Longdon, scene of some of the most intense fighting during the Falklands conflict back in 1982.

I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in the FI and Mount Longdon is just one of the experiences I shall take to my grave. 1982 could have been yesterday.
