After the excitement earlier this year of Snowboarding in Kerry, we really weren't expecting to get heavy snow for a good while....however....Andy phoned this morning to see if I was up for heading out, so we took his trusty Landrover to the top of the Conor Pass, and started to hike.
As you can see the weather was bright and sunny, but very cold, and the snow was actually pretty good - maybe 8 inches of fluffy powder at the top. There were fantastic views over Brandon Bay and Dingle, and we had the place to ourselves until late in the afternoon, when we saw a couple of hardy hikers. We managed a good few runs, and have our fingers crossed for a little more snow!
The Conor Pass road has signs up saying its closed, but with the help of four wheel drive we made it down - it did look pretty serious though....
