Cliffs of Moher, Ireland. May, 1992

My father declined to visit Ireland's famous cliffs that rise above the turbulent Atlantic below. Probably a good thing, too, for he would have been terrified to see that there are no guard rails of any kind separating the visitors from the stoney edge. There is a small sign that reads "Please Do Not Go Beyond This Point," which people routinely ignore. And while there are no official records kept, locals say that ten to fifteen deaths (some deliberate, some not) occur annually.
