The first hint of something weird afoot is a sign – ‘A Point of Interest – 5 km’. What a tease!! As it didn’t actually state what you’d see at the end of 5 km, I spent the next 3 km having a rant about how the wording was probably longer than the featured attraction.
3 km later came another sign – ‘A Point of Interest – 2 km’. Now I was really intrigued, and lets face it – there wasn’t much else to look at.
2 km later, and we came across this! The white arrow below the sign does indeed point to a hole in the hill. Who would have thought there’d be such excitement in such a bleak landscape? And when you consider the road leads to the above-mentioned public toilet, well … you can imagine the thrill!
I wonder how many others have the exact same photo?!?!
Incidentally, the road also passes ‘South Galway’ station. I found it difficult to imagine a landscape looking less like South Galway – with the possible exception of Antarctica – but it was apparently so named to remind the settlers of their roots.
Now I just KNOW this’ll make you want to visit this fascinating area!!
