Must-See Monday: Giant’s Causeway

St. Patrick’s Day was last week. But we’re still celebrating the week with these incredible photos of Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, courtesy of Tripper, Colleen McDevitt

Rainbow

I had gazed at photos of Ireland, but had never really set my eyes on something this naturally gorgeous. Not to mention I saw more rainbows on this coast than I think I’ve seen in my entire life! The perfectly shaped basalt columns of Giant’s Causeway were formed by a volcanic explosion that occurred over 60 million years ago! You MUST make it to Giant’s Causeway for a visit. It’s near a town called Bushmills in Northern Ireland which is home to the world’s oldest registered distillery, and some yummy whiskey.

After the windy visit to the Causeway, the weather allowed for us to visit the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge just up the road. I was stunned even further by the view as we walked with sheep-filled countryside on one side and teal-blue coast on the other. Walking across the skinny, wooden rope bridge as waves crashed into rocky coast below us was quite a feat for some! And he end result was even better… like standing on top of the world!
