It's been a busy week. I've got all of my sites selected for my thesis research, but it's been a lot of walking. About 45 miles. With a 30-40 lb. pack. Which I can look forward to repeating every week for the next 4 weeks or so. Great exercise, though, and beautiful things to see. (To be completely honest, I've loved this week.) I included photos from 2 of the sites.. One is called The Devil's Glen - it's in a valley (so of course you have to hike up the mountain, then down into the valley, and back out....) with a river and a big ol' waterfall, that echoes all throughout the valley. It makes an interesting noise, and especially if you were passing that way by night I imagine it lives up to it's name. It poured for a few days here this week, so when I headed out to the site the water was in full force. Really cool. The other site is out at Bray Head, so it's right on the ocean. There's the best trail along the cliffs overlooking the sea and the train below, then it heads up the mountain to a big cross at the summit that you can see for miles around. And since I can only work in th field on days when the bugs think it's nice enough to be outside, the weather should be pretty beautiful, too. Wishing this was your office yet?
