What a day. The ridge walk from Cruach Mhor to Cnoc na Toinne is always a treat, the finest I know of. But yesterday the weather and the great company made it particularly memorable. On what was one of the finest November days ever - a fact established by using scientific means and counting the number of times people said 'wow' - there was something for everyone, peak baggers, ridge walkers, the photographers looking for that great shot. South Kerry is a beautiful place but I know only too well that at this time of year it likes to hide it a little behind cloud or fog, or sheets of rain. Yesterday it was in full show off mode, and it has a lot to show off. Thanks to Jackill and Bleck Cra for leading the way on a finely judged walk, think going via Strickeen or Cnoc na dTarbh, or hurrying on to Carrauntoohil, would have been a little too much, as it was I think everyone was left with that rare blend of knowing they had completed the perfect walk on the perfect day.
