Joy in the Mournes
The Mourne Mountains are one of the island of Ireland's crown jewels. Consisting of a range of ninety-three (!) mountains, they are linked not only by close physical proximity, but also a man-made series of walls utterly unlike anything else in Ireland. They provide spectacular views across Ireland, the Irish sea, and occasionally across into Scotland, if the weather permits. Here, the haze was just a little too strong to see all the way across, but the sweep down across forests, farmland, and down to the bay is enough for me. This view is from Sliabh Binnian, across Annalong, and down to the Isle of Man.
