    Yikes! She is mighty brave! Ohmigod – Karen, do NOT look behind you and do NOT look DOWN for cripes sake.

    Oh, I could NOT stand there – I would have to pee so bad. Sorry if that's Too Much Information but that scenery/backdrop is too exciting and scary all at once. I don't mind viewing it from a safer vantage point though. You know, like how I am right now – in my armchair at home. LOL. Just kidding, I'd really like to see this in person someday. 🙂

    Oh, and LOL – Did my comment in the previous post influence this posts' title? Heehee. If it did, that's my awesome power of persuasion at work there. Right! 😉

    Nope…No thanks…she can have it. I would be a clinging mass of jello. LOL

    hey guys – the rock was really large! I guess you had to be there, I am not afraid of heights most of the time and when I am in control of the situation, I always tend to go to the edge of the rocks to look over and see how far down it is, I am always very careful when doing this and go slowly 🙂 This trail was wonderful – I just wish it hadn't been so windy – we took this trail the day before my 55th birthday and went for a grand hike up to the Delicate Arch to celebrate my 55th!!

    A brave woman indeed. You wouldn't catch me up there. Great Shot Mike.

    @ Teeni, actually, yes it did. In fact, it influenced the choice of this picture for the post. I had just uploaded the Canyonlands photos to Flickr, so I knew this photo was there and would fit perfectly here! 😉

    LOL. Yes, your Karen IS a brave woman. Oh, and happy 55th birthday to her – albeit a bit late! Like Calamity – I'd be a clinging mass of jello (love that description), especially if it were windy up there.
