A dash of colour on a dull day
by wicklore  22 Dec 2014
Not being able to be at Newgrange (having never applied for a ticket in my life) I decided to celebrate the winter solstice by watching the sun rise from a Wicklow hill. I planned to welcome the sun and speak encouraging words to it and let it know that from here on in it got easier for the next 6 months until the summer solstice in 2015.

Timeanddate.com told me sunrise would be at 8:38am. I got up early and made my way to the car park between Black and Sorrel Hills in the Wicklow Mountains. A slow start meant that sunrise found me high on Sorrel Hill, and not Lugnagun as planned. At 8:38am the glorious first rays of the sun peeping over the eastern Wicklow hills were completely denied to me by a persistent and typical blanket of cloud that soaked me and prevented me seeing more than 50 feet in any direction. Instead of warm and friendly sunlight I was surrounded by a dull, grey cloud that sneaked beneath my layers and chilled me. There was no moment of sunrise – just a slight lightening of the dreary enveloping cloud. I trudged on nonetheless as I expected something interesting to happen as so often does on my forays into the hills.

The route up Sorrel is a well-worn scar of exposed black bog which is wet and slippy and ever expanding by the trample of endless feet. On the road at the start of the track someone has spray painted arrows and information for the participants of some ‘pro race’ or other, pointing the hordes up Sorrell Hill. But that was another time and this early in the morning only the cold wind made any sound to accompany my heavy breathing and sucking footsteps. The summit carn of jumbled rock and stones loomed through the cloud and after a brief, chilly stop I descended westwards to find the ridge to Lugnagun.

According to the date on a summit comment I had previously written, it was 6 years since I had visited Lugnagun. I was quite taken aback by this – it felt like only recently that I had clambered up the short slope from the road below. 6 years? As I walked along my reverie was broken by something white on the ground. On closer inspection it turned out to be a small Christmas teddy bear- the type that hangs on a Christmas tree. Then I found another one. And another one. They were scattered around the heather. There was tinsel too, and baubles. Lots of baubles. Perplexed I looked around and there it was! A Christmas tree! Someone had decorated a tree just where the forest stopped and deforestation started near the summit. But the deforestation meant that a steady wind blew through the area and had stripped most of the decorations off the tree. They were scattered about the nearby hillside. I rescued 4 teddy bears and 4 Santas in total and decided to give them a safe and permanent home back in Dublin. They now occupy a warm and wind-free place high up on an indoor tree! Something interesting usually happens when I get out on the hills, and today was no different! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/633/comment/17765/
