The view is exceptional from Irish Hills Prayer Sanctuary, and the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, and Bridal Veil Falls, and Collins Creek, and the Natural Bridge, and Indian Rock Caves... We could go on, but you get the picture. Oh, speaking of pictures there are plenty of wide open spaces and scenery pose ready.
