I snapped this photo just before I took my first step on the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge in Northern Ireland. I’m not a fan of heights, but it was a long walk from the visitor’s parking lot to the bridge, so I felt compelled to make the crossing.
The return trip was actually scarier than the initial crossing because the bridge seemed to bounce more and the rocks below looked more jagged. Fortunately, the weather was great and the winds were calm that day. A visit to the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge is a must-do while visiting Northern Ireland–even if you’re afraid of heights.
