The mountain of Slievenamon is about 15km from home, in Tipperary and just across the county border from county Kilkenny. Its Elevation is 721 meters and on a clear day offers good views of a large part of the south east of Ireland, including down to Hook-head on the Wexford coastline.

The pictures below are taken on a walk up to the top two weekends ago, it was a very foggy Sunday morning at the top as you can see. The mist only added to the wonderful feeling of being up there even though none of the best views where possible.

  3. How beautiful. I thought of you over the weekend as we travelled across bog lands to Mullingar. All beautifully dismal and water-logged. πŸ™‚

    Great walk even though you can’t see much through the mist.
    It (the mist) certainly makes for an atmospheric photo or two.

    I love the gently curving hills against the level horizon.
