Whoa, What a Climb!

When I'm not able to explore the outdoors, I read blogs and watch hiking adventures on You Tube. Last night, I missed the mountains, again! (Even if I just hiked last weekend, boohoo). While surfing, I chanced on a video of Robin Esrock of The Modern Gonzo. Robin is an adventurer, travel writer and host of Word Travels along with Julia Dimon. You might have caught previous episodes in one of the cable channels. I forgot which one exactly - it's either Discovery Channel or Nat Geo. They're the travel writers whose adventures are shown on t.v.. They actually shot some episodes here in Palawan. Now, that's a great job!

The video below shows Robin hiking Mt. Huashan in Huayin City, China. It's considered a sacred mountain but I am not surprised. With that kind of trail, you will surely go rattle on your knees and utter your most fervent prayers. 

Curious?

Check it out! I've never seen anything like it. At first, I thought it was fake but I did a little research and several various sources all point to the same crazy trail.  Like a true blue acrophobic,  I sweat watching him go through the entire thing.  Will I be able to do it? AS OF THIS TIME?! NO WAY!!! I may enjoy extreme adventures every now and  but this is just way out of my mental capacity to endure. 

Enjoy the video and if you feel like doing this after watching, I SALUTE YOU!
