Weekly Photo Challenge : Endurance

For exercise, we all like to do things occasionally that test our endurance, whether it is running a marathon,  or even harder again, taking part in a triathalon, swimming or walking or climbing high mountains.   My own particular form of torture exercise is hillwalking, and there have been times when the hill in front of me has seemed very daunting, but faced with the choice of turning back half way through, or continuing on, most times the upward option wins out, and I eventually get to the top…sometimes vowing never to try again!   Here are some photos taken on a hike of Galtymore, in County Tipperary last year.

    Beautiful photos! Well worth the punishment 🙂 I hiked up the mountain (can’t remember the name, but apparently the tallest in Clare) near Kilaloe the last time I was home and as we looked across the Shannon, we said the Galtee’s were on the list for the next time in Ireland 🙂

    We were just in Ireland–some of what you call “hills,” I call mountains . . . 😉

    Beautiful pictures! Hill walking might be torture but it’s well worth it for the views. I particularly like the mist on the hills. 🙂
