A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo  9 Oct 2014
Patrick Zerkowski's film is a bright sunny cheerful well organised piece that will be a real boon to anyone thinking of walking this way. I like the fact that Patrick marked the route clearly and makes everything very easy to follow. In his own words :
"It was another fantastic afternoon in the Mourne Mountains this year,so I decided to climb two peaks: ROCKY MOUNTAIN 525 M and CHIMNEY ROCK MOUNTAIN 656 M which both offer stunning views. "
The music matches the upbeat feel of the film. A real pleasure!
PS Patrick appears to have added a metre to Rocky. I think we can forgive him that.
