KILLARNEY NAT. PARK: After Kilkenny, we drove along narrow, winding mountain roads through Killarney National Park. The views were breathtaking, if damp (it rained off and on all day). This is the stream just below the famous Torc Waterfall. The surrounding moss-covered forest is breathtakingly beautiful--it seemed like we had entered Tolkein's Middle Earth. The tiny pink streaks in the center of the picture are branches of wild rhododendrons in bloom.
