Dead Cold
The Glen River was the colour of air; over the rocks it crashed like beaten sheet silver and a merciless North wind lifted kilts and wigs without favour. My companion noted that despite every entrée to the Mournes, the Original is still the Best. Up from a re-fitted Donard Car Park, through glistening holly, ancient roots and rushing water, we access the entire Mournes panorama. East to high Donard. West to glorious Commedagh. A wandering ridge to Hare’s Gap, eating venue since Jesus did the loaves and fishes – and the foot of rugged Bearnagh. Behind herself hang Meelmore, with stupendous views of Bearnagh and your route out - and Meelbeg, a simple pull, with a tradition of sheep carcasses. The whole hape (with a waist under 36”) in 4 hours. My companion? The famous polymath Peewee McGargle. Walking with Peewee is like that sleep-learning thing: the volume of information soon precipitates a trance-like state whence he can pour encyclopaedias of knowledge into your ears – why the sky is blue, why singing is bad, how many buckets there are in a Larne hardware store. Today, the movement for women’s liberation was getting his attention, along with chests – apparently. Then in the recesses I heard “... hanged himself”. Peewee thinks he might have mountain biked underneath some poor, swinging cadaver. Then I rejoined with the time I must have sauntered past the unfortunate squaddie pinged on Donard. Like Quint and Hooper doing scars, Peewee and I were doing “dead on the hills” – lost, shot, eaten by wolves …. talked to death. In Scotland there is a hill goes by the threat of “Deid for Cauld”, simply “Killed by the Cold” – in summer an interesting reflection; in a Northern winter, a tad discomfiting. Hey Ho the Spring. Here’s to making it.
