Solitude and isolation can all be found in Killarneys National Park.
This picture portrays a typical day in Ireland more often found during the winter.
So many people seem to give out and comment about the weather. But really there’s no such thing as bad weather, rather the person just wasn’t prepared for what Mother Nature throws at them.
I don’t think I’ve gone through a day without someone commenting on the weather, no matter how bad or good it is. Is this just an Irish thing? ☘️
Last fall Biomark and Idaho Fish and Game installed the East Fork of the Salmon River PIT tag detection system. The location was debated over for a long time but the site was settled on for various reasons. The site was not a good location for an instream antenna installation because of river features and has since been abandoned. 6 antennas were installed and three washed out to be lost to the river within the first couple of months of operation as we expected. The remaining 3 were recovered this spring from the site. One of the lost antennas was recently discovered by locals in Salmon many miles way! Our Salmon field crew went out to retrieve the antenna and to check it’s condition. The antenna had its cable sheared off but when a new cable was attached, the antenna worked normally! This story is a testament to the overall durability of our instream equipment. This antenna travelled an amazing 84.4 river miles. The hydrograph shows the flows in that section of the river during the 84.4 mile journey. It would have been a rough ride at times!!!

I can not recommend wild camping enough, getting away from everyday life, throwing yourself into the wilderness with nothing but solitude can be very refreshing.
Connecting with the outdoors is very important for humans, it’s a part of who we are and has been encoded in our DNA for generations.
For anyone looking to get into wild camping or the outdoors, I would highly recommend glamping. Although it’s nowhere near as good as wild camping in my opinion, I do think it’s a great stepping stone.

There are many glamping locations scattered all over the country. Swipe right for the map.
