Landscapes photographs and few words about my second hike in Ireland are here for you to enjoy. Many people drive a car to the Glenmacnass waterfall to take pictures of the waterfall and have picnic or to camp near the Glenmacnass river. It was firs time in Ireland that I saw someone camping. Well, it is some kind of lazy camping without any hiking requited, because there is quite big car park near the river. Many people come here to sit near the river, let the kids play in the water, have a barbecue, picnic and adore the amazing view.
Glenmacnass waterfall car park is a good starting point for a hike to Tonelagee. Me and my friend came quite early and my friend picked a perfect spot for parking his car. I appreciated that when we came back and the car park was full, many car was blocked, but we could easily drive away, because of the good position that my friend chose for the car.I mentionned this just as little warning for you in case you arrive early as we did. You would not want to park your car in the middle of a big empty parking space, come back from your hike and find your car blocked. It was really surprise for me how many people come to visit this place.
I took few pictures of the Glenmacnass waterfall and we started walking following the Glenmacnass river, looking for the best spot to cross the river. You can see the path that we followed behind the river and a little hill which we had to climb on the left side of the pictures below.
I love the dark blue color of the river, bright sky and amazing view of the mountaigns.We were lucky to have such a wonderful sunny day.
The hill looks small, but it was quite steep for me and after few meters I had quite enough exercise for the day. There was no path to follow and we had to find our way through little bushes up to the hill. I stopped every few meters to take pictures of the amazing view.
Next two photographs show you the views that I had from the top of the small hill: the first sign of a path to follow and on the second picture is a view of a road and the place where we walked from. As we walked further we started to see the Tonelagee mountain.

The stone in the last picture is the place where we had our picnic with a wonderful view of Lough Ouler.
You can see photographs of the view and much more from this hike in part two of this article, which is coming up on my blog soon. Keep an eye for new posts in the category “Hiking and travel.”
