Blinding Cloud on Maol Reidh
by swoop  30 May 2011
Yesterday, windy ,raining and cloudy day that it was, proved to be an excellent trekking experience. Just after this picture was taken of point 803m the cloud decended and forced us to turn back towards Delphi Centre. We had intended reaching Ben Bury but it was not to be.
Amazing how quick cloud cover surrounded us, firstly passing us covering doo lough below, and then suddenly moving south over the Teevaree rocks and painting out our route to base.
Viz was 10ft , and cold, mixed with rain and a little hail. The west wind dropped as we made our decent but made for long push downhill. Excellent visit to these hills , amazing views in all direction... but be prepared for sea cloud that can rapidly reduce viz to zero ! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/6362/
