At the top here, we met a bunch of Australians. Nice crowd and all well travelled. Just as we arrived a car was perched right on the edge of the cliff. 1000 foot drop below. Turned out the driver had gone for a walk with his wife and the car handbrake was not on properly! The car veered towards the end of the cliff but by sheer luck, the steering had locked in such a position that it slightly turned the car away from the edge line. It came to rest just a couple of feet from toppling over.
They called a recovery truck and the young fellow studied the car and it’s position and attempted to drive it back up the slope from where it came. He started moving and the wheels span and it momentarily slipped even closer to the edge! But in fine style he managed to get the car back up to the car park. The couple were visibly shocked. We were disappointed it didn’t go over the edge – boring.
