|The second half of the horseshoe|
|Lovely morning and lovely views....spoiled by a new scar on the landscape|

I was moving well and enjoyed the scrambly bits on the ridge to Skregmore and then I just kept a good pace on all the way to the summit of Carrauntoohil where I enjoyed a bit of lunch. The weather was by now showing signs of change and clouds descended to around 950mtrs and carried the odd spit of rain. It never fails to astound me just how stupid some people are as I met guy on Cahers east top who was out in shorts and Tshirt with no backpack or any supplies. I asked him if he had any extra clothes etc and when he said no I recommended that he should consider heading down but he just laughed and carried on. I guess he wasn't laughing about an hour later when more continuous rain arrived on the tops. I continued on down and reached the car before the rain arrived. I was pleasantly surprised to find it had only taken me just over four hours. Peeing down now.
