    For the record, this is my nightmare.


    I don't know how it ends. Couldn't make it that far.

    My wife and I have been to places like that in Utah. Well at least she thought they looked like that, I didn't have any problems getting past them but she wouldn't follow me.

    I did that in 2010 while traveling in Spain. There is a shop where you can rent or buy a harness/via Ferrata set in El Choro and get a guide if you want one. When I did it the start of the path was completely gone with just beams a few feet apart and hand holds into the rock to use. Also there were more just beams than path when I did it than in that video. Physically it’s not that tough a pathway but I can understand the mental part being a strong deterrent to some. It was mentally taxing at the beginning for me. There is a grassy knoll with an old stone house between the two sections of the pathway. It’s a nice calming space to sit, eat lunch and meditate to clear the mind while in a beautiful gorge. That day is one of my better memories!

    All I could think about was humpin' that concrete and iron up there to build that walkway. That would be a nightmare.

    So is this a path to an old mine, or something? I am thinking there must have been some sort of economic imperative to build this.

    As none of these involve a rickety carnival ferris wheel or clowns, I am safe.

    What if I told you that it ends with some kittens in a box. Then would you watch it?

    No, the kittens in the box break your fall at the bottom of the chasm.

    I think OSHA had the kittens looking at that walkway.

    I've seen a similar video, except there's no guardrail at all, the guy is riding a motocross bike.

    Want me to find it for you?

    I thought the same thing; Who the hell came up with the thought it would be a good idea to build that, and how many people died in the construction?

    What I want to know is who put that concrete catwalk up there in the first place? Building that thing had to be 10x hairier than walking on it.

    The Wiki said that the walkway was constructed to allow dam workers easy passage between two adjacent dams. I wonder if they got the job of building the walkway.
