Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene

From Killarney National Park.

So much of Ireland’s landscape is rugged and wild, but sometimes it can seem extremely peaceful, too.  Killarney National Park, created in 1932, is a wonderful expanse of mountains, woods, rocks, lakes, and waterfalls.  We were biking through the park, which was frankly exhausting, but the views were quite restorative.

Speaking of rocks, the park has an interesting geological boundary, with one side underlain by Devonian (sandstone) rocks, and the other with Carboniferous (limestone) rocks.
