The mist comes dropping slow...
by Colin Murphy  16 Aug 2022
I'm paraphrasing Yeats (it's actually 'the peace comes dropping slow'), but I'm moved to verse because an otherwise unremarkable hill was enhanced enormously by the presence of low-lying early morning mist that stretched from the hill right across the Inishowen Peninsula. In the distance I could see the summits of Errigal & Muckish rising from a sea of white, not to mention several turbines poking up their heads. Incidentally, I encountered several wind farm employees in vans on my walk, all of whom greeted me, and so apparently have no issue with hillwalkers accessing their tracks.
