Brave or Stupid?



I thought this would make such a great photo with
the ledge hanging out over the dramatic landscape. I had planned to get further out on the tip of the ledge but when I tried to go out further I felt like a cat that had been thrown into the water. I just could hardly scramble back out of there fast enough. I'm not really afraid of heights but this is really exactly what it looks like, really high up and no safety features other than my ear muffs!  My palms still perspire when I look at these photos! LOL!  I'm glad I got them though.  This is such a beautiful area to hike.

There is nothing like standing on the edge of time...ain't it grand to feel so alive out there? Looks like you were having the time of your life!

Wow... You are brave. Certainly braver than me!:)
I don't think I could stand on that small ledge without being dizzy.
What a fantastic landscape.
Good to see you again.

Oh my!! It's beautiful, but I would have peed my pants!!!! I am scared to death of edges... especially high ones like that! (Or are they called cliffs?)

its safe, and that place is sacred.
everything seems so small after standing there ... at least it did for me.
