Thought some of you might be interested in this view. The shot was made in the Huangshan Mountains of China last October.
Check out the trail as it traverses from left to right, and then turns almost straight up on the side of a cliff. I was pretty much terrified as I went up the trail, and now that I look at in one of my images it is easy to see why. My wife took one look at this and remarked, "My God, you are never going back there again."
I would add that the day we were on this climb the wind was blowing pretty hard, and it was raining and misting. To say the climb was treacherous would be like saying hurricanes are dangerous if you are standing on the beach. If the steps on the far right going up the cliff appear to be almost straight up, there is a good reason. Part of the trail was indeed almost straight up, and if notice, there would be nothing to stop a body if it slipped and fell backward. Well, you would just roll down for a few hundred feet down the trail, and then another thousand feet down the side of the mountain.
The shot was taken from an upper vantage point before we crossed down to the trail in the center.
