This is a shot of Caher taken from Carrauntoohil on 29/12/2003. It was a fabulous day to do the Cooloughra Horseshoe. We had snow on the ground and an inversion layer formed as we got higher.
There are more pictures at: http://sliabh.net/images/ireland/xmas2003/images.php

We did the horseshoe up Beenkeragh and down Caher so we didn't have the slog up to Caher. Its much more pleasant as a descent Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/821/
