Greetings from Edinburgh! This picture was taken from the top of Arthur’s Seat, the largest hill in Edinburgh. The hill was formed from an extinct volcano, and offers a gorgeous panoramic view of the city. The large grassy area at the top of the photo is The Meadows, a giant park in the middle of the city. It’s a great place to go jogging, walk your dog, or play football (I’ve avoided calling it “soccer” in order to prevent any international conflicts from arising). This was during my second weekend in Edinburgh, so the sun can still be seen before it migrates south for the fall and winter. It was also extremely windy at the top, something I’m trying really hard to hide in this picture. I recommend a good cup of cocoa after finishing this very accessible climb!
