It was a perfect autumn day of clear blue sky and sunshine, crisp cold air and brilliant autumn colours. If the low sun and long shadows of this first day of Old Time did not remind us that winter is just around the corner, then the snow on the Reeks certainly did! Ten members enjoyed the day – a pleasant walk along the western track deep into the valley, then up steadily to the ridge and on to the West Pap. No delay here (too cold!) but straight to the East Pap and lunch. A day to keep moving, or freeze. The return route through the valley was just as pleasant. We enjoyed a coffee together afterwards, and a browse through the day’s photos.
