I love the tufts of grass – or maybe there are rocks hidden under some of them – watch where you put your foot!
This was taken on a hike in the Galtee mountains in Co. Tipperary on Sunday, a very long gradual climb (over 450 metres) to a lake nestled near the top of the mountain, The lake is called Lough Curra, and to get there we followed the old ‘Ice Road’ which was used to draw ice down the valley to the big houses, and there is still evidence of ice erosion from the ice age, close to the lake at the top.
Here we are, having a break at the lake, before starting down the steep descent again. About a week ago, we had some snow on high ground, and you can still see the remains of it on the mountain side.
