Down THIS?!? Surely you jest, Pat.

GG: just to check I asked MTL if we really did it and the answer was 'Yes!' It is frowned upon now in some countries because it can damage the environment - in other words the mountain slips down - so i won't do it again . Promise!

That's incredible, I'm not sure I'm that brave! In high school everyone was big on cliff diving, though I never got the chance... not that I would've taken it :o)

That's some lump of rock missus.
You must have been vert brave. My thing was climbing very high trees, and biking down hills "no hands".

Flippin' heck, Pat. You RAN down THAT? You're a better woman than I. It looks treacherous and as if the words "run" and "down" have no business anywhere near it, but as if the words "broken" and "neck" might be ones it had heard before.

PI said...

Kath ; you know some people inspire bravery and both Ginny and i felt safe with the two boys looking after us.

apprentic; welcome! You know more about courage than I do. This was really foolhardiness

Sam: honestly the photo makes it look worse than it is and you are digging your heels into the mountain and running from side to side so you don't hurtle forward - in theory.

The thing that cracks me up now that you say it, Pat is that it's been deemed dangerous to the environment...but not to people :-D

PI said...

GG: now you've made me laugh too. It is ridiculous isn't it?
