Two Views of Gay Head

The cliffs at the westernmost point of Martha's Vineyard. Sailors named them for their gaily colored bands of clay.

Gay Head cliffs and light, from the overlook. To the right is the entrance of Buzzards Bay. About 45 degrees to the left is Cuttyhunk, last and smallest inhabited island of the Elizabeth Islands chain. JFK Jr's plane went down about 4.5 miles to the left (west). To the east (right) lie Lobsterville and across the inlet, the fishing village of Menemsha.
