Sheep on Healy Pass, Ireland
This sheep didn't mind having his photo taken as we drove from County Cork to County Kerry along the Healy Pass on the Beara Peninsula. He actually seemed rather curious about us. Probably because so few cars were passing through on this overcast autumn day.
Healy Pass, named on maps as R457, was created in 1847 as a famine relief project. 8 miles of hairpin turns wind through the mountains offering beautiful views of waterfalls, lakes, small communities, and, of course, grazing sheep.
