MYTHOLOGY
The Greek Peleponnese presents this heady cocktail of grassy tops and sunbaked beaches. Benign breezes buffet its pretty ankles in even in the hottest days. Crystal waters kiss its gentle shores. And man and mythology sit astride its highest peaks like ...... blah blah blah.
This pic was taken yesterday in scenery that poked your eyes until they hurt. And it was here at Loughshannagh Co Down ........ Ireland.
Go to the Peleponnese, why don't you? Go to the ends of the earth. Go until your feet are bleeding and raw - and still you will get nowhere more magically pretty than this, our Ireland.
That is my story and a thousand more of us will tell the same one of yesterday, somewhere on the oul sod.
I was 5 hours amongst them and was I coming in? Nope. 6 hours? Not a chance. 7 hours in sunshine that felt like melted butterscotch? Not on your life ....
A sudden bolt off Ott to Slieveloughshannagh, Meelbeg and Meelmore; slip-sliding scrambles on to Bearnagh Tors; dazed danderings through spear-tip reeds and bog cotton; green glittering dragonflies on golden pools above the dam; wicked, dizzy drops into Crom reservoir; odd and unlikely Doan; the silver dust beaches of Loughshannagh; murderous ascent in knee-high heather on to Carn; and a drunken amble across gentle Slieve Muck.
The Peleponnese et cetera? Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes.

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 4 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...
