Iargo means "many waters."
Water, and moss, and ferns, oh my!
The air is so wet it feels difficult to take a deep breath,
and you almost feel like you're in a temperate rain forest.
It feels ancient, and I suppose it is.
Then you arrive at the river.
Can you see those two white dots out there on the water?
Those are either Mute Swans or Trumpeters. I hope they are
are Mute Swans, they are rare and endangered.
If there is any place they could survive,
I have to believe it would be Iargo.
Now, to give you a little perspective about how far you descend into this
otherworldly place, you can climb back out with me...
here we go!
First rest stop...
Second rest stop...
One more to go...
Nearly 200 steps in all, whew!
Notice this last photo is a little blurry, 200 steps will do that to you.
Ha Ha! But I made it out, and would do it again in a heartbeat.
I hope you've enjoyed your tour, dear friends. If you are ever in the area,
be sure to stop and explore Iagro for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed.
