Laying down a marker
by Colin Murphy  8 Dec 2022
This is a nice little hill with good tracks most of the way to the summit, which is marked with a trig pillar. I always think it's nice to reach the top and find it marked in some way, either by a trig or cairn. Anyway, I was also fortunate to do this on a crisp, blue sky winter's day, which transformed otherwise ordinary fields of growth into things of beauty.
