Ireland has several mountian ranges, but most of the country is rolling hillsides.  This photo was taken on a drive through Wicklow.  We had left the coast and were heading toward Glendalough.  Keep in mind that mountains in Ireland are not like mountains in say, California, Nevada or Colorado.  They only go as high as 3,000 or 4,000 feet in height, but they are mountains all the same.  The Wicklow Mountains are the largest range in Ireland, spreading from County Dublin, all the way through County Wicklow and then into County Carlow.  Wicklow is also known as the Garden County.

People who have not been to Ireland often ask me if Ireland is really as green as it appears in photos.  It is.  This photo reminds me of the Johnny Cash song, “Forty Shades of Green” which he wrote after a trip to Ireland!
