Salvaging Something From A Bad Day
by Aidy  21 Nov 2015
I had a bit of a disastrous morning, setting out with my nephew to climb Croaghgorm so that I could tick off its newly added lower summits, and maybe look for the plane wreckage. It looked magnificent in the sunrise with a dusting of snow, but just as I was looking for a place to park, my dashboard lit up with warning lights, and I lost power steering and power in general. Fearing it was the alternator and that if I shut off the engine it wouldn't start again, we were forced to turn and go straight home (at a very slow pace). It turned out to be the fan belt, and I was lucky I hadn't wrecked the engine driving back, but it was too late now for Croaghgorm. Instead we headed off in my nephew's car for Scraigs. Parking at the water plant high on the eastern side of Lough Muck, it was a straightforward, short climb to the summit, although very boggy with all the rain we've had. The views were stunning when the low clouds periodically parted, and they lent drama to the landscape as they partially hid and revealed the landscape moving quickly over it in the strong winds. Even the passing hail showers didn't dampen our spirits, glad as we were to salvage some walking from the day. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/708/comment/18391/
