Winter Hiking at Wicklow Mountains National Park


Last weekend, me, hubby and couple of our friends went back to the lovely Wicklow Mountains National Park. If you remember, hubby and I hiked here before but we did not went up the hill because we're not wearing proper gears. We made a promise to go back and so we did. This time we finished the Spinc and Glenealo Valley or the White Route.

Look at the end of the mountain on the right, that's where we came from.
The word Spinc came from the Irish word 'An Spinc' that means 'Pointed Hill" .
The trail was indeed pointed.
 


Walking trail above the left mountain. I can't keep up with their speed. Help!!!

It was a fun, breezy, and a bit difficult day for me. Wait, don't judge me yet. I know it is only 380m climb. But having no practice for months, I find it hard to catch my breath. Plus, the first part of the trail was between tall trees. Not much air getting in.

Okay, enough with the excuses. The important things were I made it to the top and I finished the 9-kilometre hillwalk for 4 hours and 30 minutes including rest in different spots to take pictures. Not bad aye!

I used my camera phone in all my photos. So sorry for the blurry shots. It was very cold that day and I can't kept my hands steady.

My Kind of Night

A simple cup of hot chocolate and a kiss from hubby and baby will be enough sweetness to end my day. I'm totally and truthfully grateful for God's love and continuous blessings on us. May we all have a good night sleep. Sweet dreams.

Solitude and Service

He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. Luke 9:11 Sometimes we are too busy to listen to God. We certainly need to turn down the volume of our lives to hear what God is telling us.
