What a Picture

Trolltunga - - Troll's Tongue - - Norway.

With the vertigo that I suffer I'm afraid you'd never get me up there; it's absolutely gorgeous though, isn't it?

Jeebus, my palms get sweaty just looking at that picture.

You couldn't march me out there at gunpoint.

@Tam: It makes a wonderful desktop photo. Ever read Stephen R. Donaldson's The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever? Puts me in mind of Kevin's Watch from those books. Nearer to home, Chimney Rock State Park near Asheville, NC, has that same sort of look, but worn down quite a bit.

I guess as a native Floridian I'm a natural flatlander. Started getting vertigo in second grade. Love the look of mountains, but dread hiking them. I might crawl out on that Troll's Tongue, whimpering all the way, but would much prefer not to.
