... and all i wanted was warm clothes and to sit down.
As I walked to the bus I looked around at the whole mountain and realized I hiked the all the way up, along the whole top of it, and all the way down. Needless to say I felt pretty accomplished! Well even though the weather wasn't the best and the hike was not the easiest I did overall enjoy my experience! I can now finally say that I successfully HIKED an IRISH MOUNTAIN!!
Slan go ...
