Still hilly after all these years…

So, on Easter Monday I kept a promise to myself and my daughter home from university, and climbed into the Mournes for the first time in more than thirty years. We clambered up to the Hares Gap, and once we saw that that hadn’t killed us, we swung down to the edge of Ben Crom reservoir. After lunch to the sound of water gurgling over the big stones, and not a sinner near us, we trudged to the Mourne Wall along the shoulder of Bearnagh – the summit was a bit beyond our abilities, why wasn’t I warned how steep these damn hills are?! – and down to the Hares Gap again. A great day, surpassing our expectations – even if the sun did burn the nose off me! 🙂

Some pics, if I can link to them…
