Back to the Mournes
As Johnny once said "I've been everywhere man....." but my heart is in the Mournes.
The return of the hiking weather brings a spark to living.
I'm sitting at my desk at work longing for that revitalising chill of the mountains, itís classic hiking weather to day, bright and cool. What appeals to me? .....the solitude, the deep history of the mountains. Landscape. There's an ancient draw embedded in our genes to these immense monuments of nature.
I met man in the mountains who nodded as he passed, all he said was, ďItís good to be aliveĒ. Here here.
PS
Whatís the situation regarding mountain bikers tearing down the Glen River path?.
I stopped a biker in full flight as he hammered down the path, and was quickly surrounded by a pack of his aggressive, two wheeled and body armoured companions.
I gave them hell, and they gave hell right back. Upon reflection itís lucky I didnít end up in the river.
PPS
Glad to see Bleck Cra back again. Iím sure thereís a hidden subtext in those wonderous thoughts.

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 6 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
