Croagh Patrick via Bengoram - a unique approach

Fabulous day climbing Croagh Patrick today via Bengoram. The day started dull damp and foggy. However as we ascended into the fog the sun appeared. The valley remained hidden. We were almost above the clouds. and at one stage and could see the the top of Knockmore on Clare Island just appearing above the cloud cover. The bright sunshine produced a unique phenomenon known as the Brocken Spectre. A Brocken spectre is the magnified shadow of an observer cast upon clouds opposite of the Sun's direction. Thanks to all who joined in on today's hike We all had a most enjoyable time.
