Got a kettle and teabags on board thanks. Looks too crowded anyway.

If there was a McDonalds it might be worth it.

I can just imagine what happens when people meet head-on going either direction. Paper/Rock/Scissors to decide who gets the outside?

Looks like there are little passing areas and benches to rest on carved into the mountain side. Wonder why the Taoist temple is now a tea house? What happened to the Taoists? Looks like they sure put in a lot of work...

This reminds me of my loser brother who when shown the Grand Canyon for the first time said "it's just a big f*ckin hole in the ground" and went to wait in the car. Some people have no sense of wonder.

I get an elevated pucker factor just at the top of a mast. No thanks!

Re: Hey,Let's Go For A Little Walk Today.

What stunning views! I wish it was closer to home. I'm pretty sure if it weren't for boats I'd be living in the mountains somewhere. As for heights, I won't claim I don't get a little pucker factor myself, but that's part of the fun.

Re: Hey,Let's Go For A Little Walk Today.

Yeah, thanks Coops! This path has vaulted past base jumping with a home made chute to reach the top of my "ain't gonna do that" list.

To somewhat acrophobic me... unthinkable!
