Hiker and the Aghlas

It had been an awful, wet and windy ascent of Muckish Mountain where vision was reduced to 3m and navigation was strictly by compass and tightly clutched map.

Struggling through was rewarded though when the scene turned into an epic spectacle as we descended to the west.

Looking back to see how my hiking partner was doing I was astonished by the sight of the Aghla’s being dramatically revealed through the mists and rain.
