That is amazing! The feeling of being so high and looking down must be awsome!

It was very awesome. That whole hike was just breathtaking. 1500 feet gained in 2.5 miles, with some sections leaving you only a 3 foot wide path with a 1200 foot drop on one side and an 800 foot drop on the other. The last 1/2 mile to the top was the best (that's where this view and others like it came around).

Here's a picture looking towards the top of Angel's Landing, just a little bit away from where I took the Don't Look Down pic:


To get to the top you have to basically climb up the narrow path on the right (using chains to help you up). The guy I was hiking with got as far as where I took this picture, saw the rest of the way, and decided he'd just stay right there. I looked at it and couldn't wait to get to the top.

I went to Joshua Tree National Park last Saturday. It was the first time in over 2 years that I was able to go. It's so beautiful there. Here's a few of my favorites.............

Skull Rock

These are from my trip to Quebec Citythree hours to the northeast of mefor last weekend's semi-final and gold medal game of the World Ice Hockey Championships.

For those not in the know, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and is celebrating its 400th anniversary this year. Given its past as a battleground between France and England, walls were built around the city as protection from invaderswalls which remain visible to this day. It is certainly one of my favourite cities to visit, as it mixes old world romantic charm with some of the best that modern life has to offersuch as excellent restaurants.









This is St. John's Gate:






This is what you see past the gate:





The world famous Chateau Frontenac hotel, which dominates the city's skyline:

Quebec City is very "Europeanesque", it could easily compete with many European cities I would say.

great pics hcbiggs. Love the one Bonocomet quoted.

^Yeah it does have a European look to the buildings.

Just been to Dublin. Went for a wander to pass the time before going to HQ.

Dublin Tourism Building. Used to be a church/cathedral.



I went for a walk in St Stephens Green in Dublin. Found a waterfall which i never knew had been there. Not very good waterfall pics but never mind.



Zoomed in on the waterfall.



Swan in St Stephens Green.



I like it in Black and White.



Duck and ripples.
