St Stephens day 2004 and a truly white christmas.
There is something about climbing in fresh snow with a gale blowing and 20/30 mtrs visibility.
Climbing in these conditions with just your own wits and the contents of your rucksack to keep you safe must be one of the last great freedoms accessible to most of us.
The photo shows Cush through a rare break in the cloud from near the summit of Galtymore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1373/

Mountains have their own specialist species.
Spotted this moth flying around the summit area & managed to get a snap.
Appears to be a Grey Mountain Carpet moth. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/23206/

On 23/10/04 we approached a cloud covered Cush from the col below Galtybeg. As we reached the top the clouds cleared to reveal this view of Galtymore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/1279/

Driving away from the Galtees the morning after I climbed them, I drove through the Glen of Aherlow and saw this wonderful mist hanging in the Glen. Cush is the cone shaped mountain in the middle, with Galtybeg to the right, and Galtymore to the right again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/2103/
