Originally opened (built) in 1921, the Caminito del Rey (King's little path) was closed in 2000 after someone fell and went boom. What fool would want to walk on this thing to begin with. :o

:scared2: My God, I got queasy just watching that video. I wonder how many lives were lost in the construction of that monstrosity. (I think I'll skip lunch.)

Oy! :blink: I am deathly afraid of heights - as much as I found it intriguing, it was also very uneasy to watch.

The first time I watched the video I was holding on to the sides of the chair. Being on the 10th floor of a building makes me queasy, this thing actually made me dizzy, but I had to watch it. It's in Spain, near a town called Malaga. It was originally built to create a connection between two water falls, Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls, so workers could get back and forth. (I think I would have quit, forget early retirement) It is only one meter wide (3 feet) and over 200 meters (700 feet) above the river. As you can there is no hand rail. :scared2: Anyone see the guy with the lead attached to the wire running along the cliff? Supposedly it is now a big rock climbing attraction.

So we are brothers and sisters to all living things, and owe to all of them the same care and respect, that we wish for ourselves." — James Brabazon

Breathtaking, but hardly deadly, rox. If that bridge opend in 1921 and it took until 2000 for some moron to take a dive, it hardly seems proper that the bridge should be closed. More likely, they should simply post a sign: "All morons and klutzes should stay off the bridge."
God, please save me from Your followers.

Don't shoot the messenger!! :o geesh, would hate to be your secretary <_< I was so intrigued by this friggin thing that I read more and discovered a total of 4 people went for a ride off the edge. I also read that several million was set aside to repair the thing in 2006, but can't find anything about it ever being repaired. If I convince TylerRob to buy you a ticket to Spain, would you go check? maybe a one way ticket would suffice :rolleyes:
