woolies in ireland

Yes, the woolies exist in more than just Wyoming :-) In fact, I've never seen so many sheep as I did in Ireland. And I've certainly never had to hike through pastures of them to reach my destination. This particular sheep was found along the trail to Carrauntoohil, which is the highest peak in Ireland. At this point I was almost back to the car, far behind my fellow hikers, and my feet and knees were crying out to be done. But the tapestry of greens against the stormy sky demanded that I shoulder the Hasselblad for just a few more images.
