The sides are very steep, half snow half mud and although the swim was nice, especially given the horrendous weather, getting dressed afterwards was truly unpleasant - worse ...

... tunnel, very dark, with bends in it... and ONLY ONE CAR WIDE!!! And there comes another car, half a kilometre away, and so how the f&%$^k are we going to get ourselves out of this mess???
