Trekking NI travelled to explore the historic Slieve Gullion on a wet and misty morning. The pleasant charms of the forest were far greater than the unpleasantries of the wet weather. The forest trail was complimented with the vibrant colour of the green algae that coated the trees, the amber leaves that carpeted the forest floor and the architecture of the fairy people that lived there. Upon the summit the group found shelter in the passage tomb that they filled with echoes of laughter. Spirits were high as the journey continued across to the Callaigh Berra’s lake that lay beneath the mist. A moment was taken to appreciate the experience. The journey progressed to the bottom of the forest where the day’s adventure was concluded with warm beverages and comfy seating. The weather was harsh though this outing will be remembered for the great atmosphere. Sometimes that is the best thing about an adventure… doing it together.
