towards the Reek

View towards Croagh Patrick, aka the Reek – Ireland’s holy mountain, it’s got a little chapel on top, and apparently St. Patrick banished the snakes from the Island from there. Beautiful view from up there, but a bit of a chore to climb, as the last third is like climbing a steep field of rubble. Coming down, then, is almost harder than going up, because the rocks keep slipping and moving… worth it for the view, though, on a clear day.
