County Clare, Ireland
If you are standing on this grass-carpeted karst, you are standing atop an otherworldly stretch of limestone landscape that mingles craggy cliffs and jagged rock, the arctic remnants of the Ice Age with Mediterranean flora like ferns and orchids. How is this possible, you might be asking yourself? The scenic UNESCO-protected site evolved from its warm, previous location south of the equator to its current Irish locale in northern Europe overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
