254--Northern Ireland: Giant's Causeway & Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge
@ Where`s Cherie?     Nov 22 2004 - 19:22 PST
cherie writes: County Atrim boasts as many natural wonders as man-made wonders. The Giant's Causeway is a nautral phenomenon the cooling lava of erupting volcanoes produced fantastic moon-like formations. Some of the strange basalt columns stretch 40 feet into the sky! It leaves one to wonder: was this marvel created by tools, nature or some mythical giant?

Nearby the Giant's Causeway is the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge tethering a nearby fishing island to Northern Ireland's coast. Swinging on the rope bridge 80 feet over the crashing sea offers travelers quite a rush!

A few miles away is the 17th century Dunluce Castle precariously perched over the raging Atlantic. All in a day's work!
