With snow forecast for 20/12/09, I made a last-minute decision the previous night to take a short hike to experience Connemara in the snow. Where better to get maximum reward for minimum effort than Lackavrea. Parked in a lay-by on the road between Maam Cross and Maam village where the ridge from the mountain turns to meet the road. The photo, taken from the road, shows the peak sticking up from low haze in the immediate aftermath of a heavy snow shower. Followed the curving ridge and reached the summit in an hour at a gentle pace with plenty of photo stops. Views from the top were very impressive, especially northwards towards Leenane and east and south east over Lough Corrib. (See below for photo over Lough Corrib, and also Corcog).
