This is a picture of Bay Lough from the side of Sugarloaf Hill. The green vegetation above the lake is rhododendron which appears to be out of control. Rhododendron, an alien species that arrived from Turkey, is seen as a weed. In the words of Dr Ian Rotherham an expert on the subject "In favourable environments rhododendrons form dense, impenetrable thickets, and whilst the massed flowers in open locations are very popular with the public, it causes serious management problems for forestry and wildlife conservation." The lower slopes of Sugarloaf Hill have a number of places where the shrub has gained a foothold in forest rides. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/229/comment/337/
