Crough Patrick

We finally got to go climb Crough Patrick! We've been wanting to do this for a while but weather and illness always got in the way. It was well worth the wait. The girls were a little skeptical when they first saw it but they met the challenge with amazing energy. At 2,500 ft., the hike took us 3.5 hours round trip.

The path was anything but smooth.
Every so often we'd stop and turn around to see the view. It kept getting better and better. That's Clew Bay. Could it get any better than this? got better.

The rocky path turned into just plain rocks. Lucy was off like a mountain goat. She wanted to be the first one to the top. She's a born leader.

Lucy and I stood at the top together and she said, "It was so worth it." as she looked out across the bay. I totally agree.
