Loughcrew, Boyne Valley, Ireland

Loughcrew is one of several major Stone Age passage tomb sites in the Boyne Valley, a short drive and worthy day or more's explore west and north of Dublin. The area's ancient sites are extraordinarily interesting in understanding life during paleolithic time. 
The view from Loughcrew shows the typical pattern of Irish pattern, seemingly random, enclosed with stone over much of the country. The further west one goes, the more stone.

The tiny white dots? Hundreds of sheep.
