Deja Vu
by thomas_g  10 Aug 2012
You know that feeling when you pull up to the parking area and think, I've been here before and then arrive at Knocknaskagh summit and realise that you've been there before too. (At least I didn't have to hide behind the wall from the hail storm this time). Now thanks to MV, I'll at least know that I've been there before and not suffer the disappointment of a 50 minute drive to bag a peak I've already bagged. Although all this walk is on forest tracks, it is very rocky in places so don't be tempted to leave the boots at home. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/14750/
