Last Saturday I ventured into the hills for the first time this year. The scene in western Mourne really was ethereal, I could've happily spent the night on the shores of Loughshannagh... how I wish I did. This pic shows the wall running up to the summit of Slieve Loughshannagh, towering to the sky. The pic gives an idea of just how much snow had drifted either side of the wall. Keeping up the tradition, I tried to build a snow cave, but failed miserably. The snow was just too compact and frozen! I'll bring a shovel next time.
