Autumn Mist on Muckross Lake

An Autumn mist descends on Muckross Lake, one of the three lakes of Killarney National Park in County Kerry, Ireland.

The 10,236-hectare (26,000 acres) park was Ireland’s first National Park, established in 1932.

Hosting a varied range of native vegetation including Oaks, Yews, evergreens and shrubs, the temperate Kerry climate also provides a rainforest-like habitat for mosses and lichens.

UNESCO designated Killarney National Park as a Biosphere Reserve in 1981.

The park rests at the foot of Ireland’s tallest mountain range — McGillycuddy’s Reeks — rising up to over 1,000 metres (about 3,000 feet).

Truly an enchanting place for a long hike…
