I might have mentioned, or at least alluded, to the fact that I am a bit rotund. Fine, severely overweight. Add to this the fact that I am a smoker (I know, I am trying to quit!) with asthma (I know, I should never have started) and you have a puffing, panting fat old lady. Now, take said woman and put her at the top (well, 2nd bridge) of a canyon with stunning, amazing views and just try to stop her from going down. Don't forget to remind her every few feet (when she stops to take a photo) that she has to climb back up! She won't listen. The slope is fairly gentle, there are stairs where it is steep, she can do this!
Looking up the canyon from the second bridge.
So far, just the arthritic knees are twinging.
Straight down from the bridge. This was the closest to being in focus, damned tourists walking on the bridge, making it shake ;) This is also at maximum zoom on my camera which is 18X.
This is the map at the second bridge, I am sorry I can't find a better map for you. Here are some measurements. Click to enlarge and you should be able to see near the top of the map, 2nd and 3rd bridges, not far for distance, but the drop was incredible. The temperature felt like it dropped about 15 degrees too.
Here is a little video so you can hear the roar!
(I apologise for the quality) BTW, I don't talk, so after you have had your fill of roaring water, you can turn the sound off.
Then we had to make the climb back up. Moist cold air is not a good thing for my lungs. Add to that the lymph fluid, when I exercise passes through my lungs and I was stopping every few feet. This time to catch my breath, not take photos. Good thing they have benches along the trail for the feeble minded fat old ladies who don't know their own limits.
I will post some more stills in a day or two.
Have a good day all.
