Views, views and more views

Back to Leitrim again, this time to scale the hill I didn't feel up to last week. It was worth every ounce of the effort! A 5km round walk (a horizontal 5km - if you work it out properly it would be closer to 6km!) on the eastern slopes of Truskmore took me to three diverse monuments and provided views to travel-a-long-way-for.

Southward Crockauns, Keelogyboy, Leean Mountain and Benbo combine to make a skyline that is perhaps beyond comparison. Looking west across the hill top Sligo bay is visible through a deep gorge between Cope's Mountain and Kings Mountain (Sliabh M??r).

I won''t be back up here in a hurry though: it really is a very steep climb initially. I took over 150 photos up the top though, so I shouldn't have to go back. This in no way means I wouldn't love to be back there again at some time, but I think I'll enjoy the view from the valley floor next time.
