Fun in the Fog on Hen
by Pepe  2 Oct 2015
Our plans for Slieve Donard scuppered by fog, we drove instead to the carpark for the Rocky Mtn Circuit only to find all the mountains up here also shrouded in fog. Thinking we'd have to confine ourselves to a roadwalk, Hen came to the rescue. We trudged up the grassy path through the mist. Now I'm not advocating hillwalking in foggy conditions, but the thing about Hen is that it does have that path up. Also, the three tors up top act as misty beacons to guide you about. we used them as staging posts to keep our bearings despite the fog. Very enjoyable and unusual to sit on one of those great granite tors utterly shrouded in cloud and yet know there's a safe way down. Our great day out ended in only an hour and a half of a hillwalk - but that was better than nothing. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1388/comment/18339/
