Mourne features
Hello
To all Mourne walkers, have you noticed a red band of sub-soil which is usually exposed at the riverbanks, generally about an inch thick. It can be followed up the Glen River and there's also some thick deposits visible up the Trassey Track. If you take a closer look at the granite debris it looks as if the rocks below the line are less chemically weathered than those above. I know this sounds a bit nerdy, but knowing this kind of stuff adds to my enjoyment when tramping through the mountains. Thanks.
