Some days you find yourself walking in fog so thick you can't see the end of your nose , in a gale, with driving rain on what the forecasters said would be the best day of the weekend - then you step into a knee deep bog hole. That was last Saturday. I started at Rosmackowen Church V74200 47209 A and headed up the roadway to the fork then left to find the gate where the road becomes an unpaved track. There is just about room to park one car here without being in anyones way. Then it was 2 kms along this very good track to the area around the Glas Loughs. From the Loughs I headed straight across for the summit of Knocknagree, a bare, desolate place marked with the stone ridges so typical of the area. I struck out for Maulin and Lackawee but decided to turn around after about 1 km due to the weather conditions worsening. I went back to the Glas loughs and had a quick bite of lunch (almost had to crawl under a rock for some shelter) and the back down the track to the car. I hate not finishing a route but on unfamiliar ground and walking on your own sometimes I guess it has to happen. The photo is of Bear Island taken from near the summit in a rare break in the cloud.9 kms and 2.5 hrs.(At least I bagged Cummeeshrule on the way home) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/301/comment/1737/
