This part of the walk can be done
in four stages.

First from Boranaraltry Bridge to Knocknagun ridge . 
The bridge is wide enough to allow cars to be parked on it. 
The summit of the walk is rather flat, 
so it would be best to try and make your return point
at the start of the descent when you are looking down 
into the Glencree valley.

This is a strenuous walk of about 2 hours and a climb to the ridge of 220 metres.

Second from Cutlestown Woods carpark 
to Knocknagun ridge. If you have followed the advice
on the first stage you may have enough time
and strength to walk to the carpark 
at Knockree Hill at the entrance
to the woods, and finish the walk there.

This is a strenuous walk of about 1 ½ hours and a climb of 220 metres to the ridge.

Third from the carpark at the entrance
to the woods on Knockree Hill 
to the carpark on the other side of the hill. 
Before leaving the woods
there is a steep descent to the road. 
The road at this point has space to park 
and on the other side there is the entrance 
to the woods that will take you down 
to the Glencree River (the next stage). 
For my part I don't like a steep assent 
so I used the road as the return route back to my car.

This is a moderate walk of duration of about one hour and a climb along the trail of 20 metres with a decent of about 80 metres and a return climb on the public road of about 65 metres.

Forth from Knockree Hill down to Glencree River
and across to Crone Woods carpark. 
This will be a pleasant change from 

all the hill walking of the past.

This is a moderate walk of about 1 hour with a decent of 60 metres to the river and a climb of about 60 metres to Crone Woods car-park.

God sets up his Government Genesis chapter 1
In government buildings and offices around the world it is a common custom to find a picture of the president or the sovereign hanging on the wall. The symbolism conveys the message that the business done in that place is done on behalf of that ruler. In the days when Genesis was written, the custom was not a photo but an image of the ruler.
God did not set up images of Himself made of wood, metal or stone but living images of men and women. Mankind was to be God's agent or steward upon this world.

"Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."  (Genesis chapter 1 verse 26)
Mankind was not only created the highest in the order of creation with superior faculties to the animals but created with a personal, intellectual, moral and spiritual resemblance of God, which enabled God and mankind to enter into a communion of friendship and love with each other.
