World’s scariest hikes

Yesterday we saw some scary roads.

But, you know what, some of those roads pale in comparison compared to some of these scary hikes.

Hike # 2 in Yosemite made me nervous just sitting on the couch watching the 3 minute video.

And that is just for starters.   Hike # 4 in China ... welllll ! Who would do that? Not I, that’s for sure.

Ditto re hike # 11.

And there are other scary hikes in this series of scary hikes.

Plus, remember, going UP on the hike is only ‘half the fun’.  The hiker still has to go back down.  There are no helicopters or easy routes back that I saw.  How about you.

Personally, imho, the safe and terra firma ‘couch potato’ position of looking at the pictures and videos is the ONLY way to do these hikes.
