PARADISE AND PARKING LOTS
Another thing - and why not? Coming off Hare's Gap to the Polaphuca today, it looked like some vehicle parked at the foot of the Gap. In the 20 years of walking these mountains I am pleased to say I and everyone else have never seen any kind of vehicle at this height. Everything stays at ground level at the Trassey car park. So I thought it must be an optical illusion - farmers stuff etc. But nope there it was - a pickup van and through the binos I could have sworn I saw the Mourne Heritage Trust logo. I do hope I was mistaken and that the guardians of the Mourne Mountains choose to walk the track and not to drive it. Of course they could have been recce-ing the next chapter of their track building work. I didn't see anybody doing that but I did see a lot of boys craic-ing and keeho-ing up on the Gap. Something to do with the Mourne Wall Walk.
Wonder if the MHT would like to comment - now there would be a thing.
