This picture was taken on a cliff in the Trotternish peninsula (Tròndairnis in Scottish Gaelic) of the Isle of Skye, one of the islands of the Inner Hebrides. I was trying to climb down to make friends with the sheep, but (if you can’t tell) they are grazing on a near vertical slope. The Isle of Skye is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places I’ve ever been, with ancient black mountains, pinnacle rock formations, jagged sea cliffs, dramatic waterfalls, and amazing seafood to boot. I could not be happier that Haverford afforded me the opportunity to go to a place like this.
