Club Outing – Sally Gap Sunset

24 March 2023 | Club Outings

This outing on 14th March was bedevilled by the weather forecasts in the preceding days. These predicted near-freezing temperatures and winds of 20 km/hr. However, the forecast on the 13th showed a sunny, rain-free window just before and after sunset. On this basis, the membership was informed and the outing went ahead.

Unfortunately, the turnout on the day was extremely disappointing. Two Outings Committee members turned up, along with one new Club member.

The roads were snow and ice-free, but the Glencree road, as reported later in the day, had a closed sign. One member was affected by this and aborted his journey.

The weather was as predicted but without the wind. It was a gloriously sunny evening and the light was perfect for sunset shots behind the trees, with snow on the grass.

As the sun descended behind the hills, there was very little cloud, so we called it a day.

This Outing proved to be well worth the effort for those that travelled.
