A tourist I spoke to recently talked about seeing Ireland as a mystical land, with verdant glens and misty heights. He thought that there is a essence to the Irish landscape not found elsewhere. This photo I took of the ridge leading up to Caher from Carrauntoohil perhaps captures some of that essence. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/3301/
