Keenagh Loop Walk

Yesterday I did a 7.3 mile hike on the Keenagh Loop walk. Very enjoyable, boggy in a few places, but generally a fine walk. I had a moving average of 3.1 mph that was good. Took a few nice Pictures and include one in Gallery, it is an isolated thorn tree way up the valley of Glendorragha. The stream that flows from the mountain has no map name but loops in a 5 mile journey to join the Crumpaun river at the foot of Nephin More.  The views of Nephin and the north east were excellent.  The sun shone and all was well with the world and me.
