"These things take time"
Man, it's been a while since I've been on this site! Growing up is an odd experience. Suddenly one is plunged into a world where everything seems to be a frantic rush, where ones time is taken up by "more important" things like exams and coursework. Thankfully one gets a brief rest from that world and is now able to spend valuable time in the place he treasures most, a place where time seems to slow, a place apart. I'll stop the whining before I start to sound like Morrissey!

Anyway, I'm now back with the Mourne Youth Rangers and will be for the whole summer. There is nothing more rewarding than to feel that you are contributing somewhat to the conservation of such a special place. I'll definitely continue my volunteering in the the future.

And if anyone happens to be in Silent Valley anytime soon, be sure to check out the new nature trail which we, the Youth Rangers completely cleared in the earliest stages of the programme. Basically, we created a way for a new path to be made through a massive collection of dense... well there isn't even a word to describe it! Basically a tangled mess of trees, vines, nettles, gorse and who knows what else. The new nature trail runs from the carpark alongside the river, to a bridge that connects it with the original trail and brings you back in a circular route. There's even an elevated boardwalk on the new trail aswell! It's very impressive, considering what it used to look like!

The summit is unremarkable though easy to spot as it lies along the fence.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An easy stroll from Caherbarnagh.

There is a gate to cross when coming down from the cairn at the NE end of the main Caherbarnagh ridge (I found it was actually easier to cross the fence just right of the gate). There is a faint t...
