Croagh Patrick – Mountains
Croagh Patrick – all I can say : I love mountains. This is where I was born and spent a lot of time in my younger days. I walked mountains a number of times and did not think it would be so hard to get up to Croagh Patrick. On the other hand, My kids went flying, literally. No bother on them. Young spirit, full of energy and eager to reach the top. We picked a hot June Bank Holiday Sunday – midday! It was tough climbing the steep slopes due to the heat, especially we had run out of water. Yet, I can say, it was absolutely well worth going up to see the views from up the top. The trip was indicated to take about 3 hours long. It took us more than 5 hours as we had a lot of breaks throughout. During the climbing we had a few interesting conversation with other tourists. Some had climbed the previous day, but did not get to see the view due to the mist up in the sky. Therefore they decided to go back again the following day. Fair play to them, as it was a hard enough climb up. Breathtaking scenery. Beautiful views from the top and during the walk. Stunning picures. Great effort of everyone to reach the top. When it comes to being in Nature, this was an awesome experience.
