it's a hike *I* won't be taking any time soon - the El Caminito del Rey  
jaylake twittered a link to a video that was just amazing, so I tracked down the details.

El Caminito del Rey is a narrow walkway, formerly used by hydroelectric plant workers, built into the sides of a gorge in El Chorro, Spain.

Now it's in severe disrepair but people like to hike it. It's almost 1000 feet off the ground. The drop is straight down. Yikes. I'll pass. I'll just play the video game based on the hike, instead.

The scary thing is that there is a part of me that really wants to do that. However, I'm sure the other parts of me would prevent that from happening.

For me, the "other parts" would be my fingers clenched around any object they could find that was far away from the entrance to the hike.

Or my nads, as they ascended towards my throat!
