Seems Grander Than It Is
by Aidy  28 Mar 2017
Climbed on the way to the Urris HIlls from Mamore Gap, and like all the hills on both sides of the gap, I was captivated by the rugged terrain and the amazing views. All these hills have the feel of much bigger mountains than they actually are and the day I spent there must be among the most enjoyable walks I've had.
