Getting Back to Priest's Leap Gap
by CaptainVertigo  18 Sep 2015
Contouring back to Priest's Leap Gap from Knockboy South Top requires some concentration as the terrain, as you approach the gap, is hazardous. I found it difficult to stop turning around to have another look at Bantry Bay framed by the lovely valley. This is heady stuff. Several hours earlier, as I arrived at the gap from the south I saw a zany red van parked precariously by the side of the road with an elevated roof and padded tinfoil insulating the windows. When my day's work was done, I stood in the eye of the gap ,and the little red van sailed by. The occupants were a most beautiful young couple. They beamed with happiness. I felt momentarily like an interloper between the chiming of the exquisite scenery and the radiance of the archetypal pair. I was very glad for them. Of course everything passes. Not just the young couple but the valley and the mountains themselves. How can things that have ever existed cease to exist? If things exist at all must they not continue to exist in some dimension that is beyond us? A good day in the mountains allows the walker to dwell on such dilemmas Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/389/comment/18319/
