Deer, Ticks And Maddening Weather
by Aidy  7 Sep 2015
I was in Dublin for an evening in some very distinguished company (I have to say that because some of them will be reading this!), and couldn't miss the chance to take my first foray into the Wicklow mountains. Lugnaquilla was the obvious choice, being on the county top and 900+ lists, and my chosen route would take me over Cloghernagh on the way. I started from Glenmalur, parking at the Ballinafunshoge Forest Recreation Area, and taking the zig zag through the trees. There was then a less substantial path through the forest before I emerged close to Arts Lough. I met a deer hunter here who seemed very knowledgable about the area. I asked if knew what type of bird was making the high pitched noise I had just heard, and he explained that it was actually the warning cry of the sika deer. That also made me think about ticks as I had been brushing against, and under, the trees on the narrow final part of the path through the forest. Going back down the same way later, I gave myself a quick check afterwards, and sure enough, there were two ticks on my sleeve! Near Arts Lough I turned to the south to get up the steep slope up Cloghernagh's north east side. Maddeningly, the beautiful weather I had been enjoying in the early morning, disapeared, and the rest of my day was mostly in thick mist, right up until I was stepping into the car again. At the top of the steep section there was a brief boggy area, before drier ground with short grass at the summit. No views unfortunately, so the photo is from a lower point while the sun was still out. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/40/comment/18302/
