Mist on the hills

I woke up all exited this morning. I have been out travelling for three weeks for my work, I have been to Poland and Norway (my fav country). And, some may think it is exiting to do those travels, but the truth is that when you’re travelling for work doing what I did., is not that exotic. Living in hotels is nice maybe for one or two days but having to stay in a hotel for a week is no fun at all.

My last week visiting agencies in Oslo was the best part of my trip, mainly because I really like Norway and Oslo is a nice city.

Here are some of the pictures I took this week. And as you can see the weather was nice and clear, temperatures a bit low. But I love that fresh air.

So you can imagine the reason for my excitement this morning…I was finally home and the Mountain is calling my name. Had a walk scheduled for today with Mike’s Hike’s where I often help out with the group.

The route for today was planned to start getting up to Croghainmoira summit and continue along the ridge over to Fananieran, but when we gathered at Glenmalure Lodge it was looking very poor, the mist was down and it might be hard because the guys would not get any views at all ones up.

And we had to make a little change of the plan, we decided to walk up two different summits instead, and we set to it.

We decided to venture up to Carriglinneen but unfortunately the mist was still heavy in places, but I did not really care I can be out there in any type of weather, it felt so good being out on the hills again to smell the nature and the colours were beautiful.

There was a big crowd out today, and very nice meeting them all again from being away for a while, due to various MR trainings and such.

As you can see on the above map, we had to backtrack back to the car park and continue up to Cullentragh. We wanted to make a nice walk of our day since we had to change route. But I will get up to Croghainmoira again, last time we tried we had to deviate and get down to lower grounds due to a blizzard.

The weather in the mountains is forever changing, you can not really plan, the weather is what it is here in IRELAND. But I truly love getting out in any type of weather hot or cold, and even drizzles.

The mountains are calling and I must go!
