We drove to the Wicklow Mountains National Park to visit, this part of the itinerary is mainly a car tour. First, I went to the visitor service center to get a map of the national park, and then drove along the road for a while and watched the natural scenery that seemed to represent the Irish landscape from the height of a valley. The winding mountain road stretches in the secluded valley, the dense forest stands tall and straight on the sloping hillside, and the rushing river water jumps on the uneven ground. We parked on the viewing platform. Although the weather was gloomy and hindered the photo effect, the scenery before us gave us a preliminary feeling of the vastness and seclusion of the natural scenery of Ireland. I met several self-driving tourists from Eastern Europe, and they all greeted each other very friendly. It is very common to meet tourists from various countries who are traveling by car in Ireland. But quite speaking, there are still relatively few opportunities to see Chinese people in a self-driving tour in Ireland, and most Chinese people participate in group tours.
Then we drove into the excursion road in Wicklow Mountains National Park where there are few traffic. The scenery we saw along the way made us praise all the way. The reason why we are full of praise is actually because of the mountains and plains in front of us. The mountain flowers are blooming. Although there are clouds and shades along the way, we can occasionally see a little blue sky. At this moment, God is not raining and we are very satisfied. The National Park, established in 1991, is located between the rolling mountains of Wicklow and covers an area of 204.8 square kilometers. It is also one of the six national parks belonging to the Irish Heritage Administration. According to the information, the Wicklow Mountains in front of us were formed by the uplift of the crust caused by the collision of ancient Europe and the ancient American continent 400 million years ago.
Unexpectedly, this piece of land has such a long history. There are two small lakes in the national park, the upper lake and the lower lake. In addition, the mountains, swamps, lakes and other different landforms and vegetation layers are beautiful in nature and full of vitality in the vast expanse. On this road, we stopped many times along the way to watch the scenery, and the lakes and mountains we saw in the second half were even more beautiful. It's a majestic scenery, it's a kind of unadorned nature, it's a kind of undulating expanse. The scenery here is more charming than the English countryside, the nature here is more attractive than London and Oxford, and the vastness here is thicker than Scotland.
Entering Wicklow National Park, the landscape immediately turned sharply. County Wicklow, known as the "Irish Garden", has winding hills, large tracts of virgin forests, misty lakes, and time seems to have left no trace in County Wicklow. Glendalough Glendalough means "the valley between two lakes" in Irish. As the name suggests, it is a valley with two lakes. The mountains are surrounded by water vapor, and the ancient monastery ruins and round towers are located by the dark lake. It is simple and quiet, mysterious and romantic, ethereal and beautiful. The Celtic cross, like the clover, is the most famous symbol of Ireland. It is also a testimony of the Irish people's devotion to Christianity. These crosses standing above the ancient ruins seem to be quietly telling the great changes and vicissitudes of history. Today, the remains of Glendalor Monastery are scattered everywhere, and the ruins of the main hall are still standing, showing the sacred and solemnity of the year.
