    Not for the meek? You’re telling me, especially those shaky rope and wooden efforts, urrgh! Thanks, but no thanks TP!

    been on 4 of them and, yes, they were scary

      Stella, you brave woman, which ones of these did you cross?

      • Stella said

        actually 5 of them but I think they were the least scary.
        1. Royal gorge Colorado. you walk across and can see down in the gorge below through gaps in the planks, but there is a rail and it doesn’t sway.
        2.Carrick a Rede — di this as a kid. Links mainland N Irelnd to a small island. did it on a stormy day and it really does sway– especially if you and your sisters are playing around !!
        3. Capilano Vancouver — gorge not too deep and it does sway but there is a big sign asking you not to make it sway.
        4. Chesapeake — nothing scary at all.
        5. 7 mile florida- long and fabulous views but solid and does not sway.

        Scariest ever was the world Trade Centre — take the elevator to the top and you used to step out the doors and go down a step to find full floor to ceiling windows in front of you. — so there was a drop off about 100 storeys in front and below you with birds, planes, helicopters below you. Made you feel that if you leaned forward the whole thing would tip over . Knees went to jely on that one.

        Anyone walked the Golden Gate Bridge or the Sydney Harbor Bridge ? That I’d love to do

        I did this *one* time.

        I said after that I’d only walk across on the ground.

        LOL Stella. Great stuff. Some of your descriptions made me feel queasy just thinking about it! I need iron, brick or steel with no swaying or peek-a-boo gaps in the floor, thank you very much! Our Forth Road Bridge in Scotland is impressive and not scary.

        Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful on a clear day! It’s eerie on a foggy day where you can’t see where you’re going. It’s soooooo crowded with walkers, bikers and cars that it’s almost unenjoyable.

      Like everyone else, I want to know which ones. I’d go across the Bay Bridge (MD) but that’s the ONLY one.

    “This bridge leads to a ghost town”

    Yes, I am seeing how this could make sense.

    Yeah. 😯

    No.

    Yeah, Stella, which ones did you cross?

    Thanks TP. This, and Sperry’s comment about Yosemite on Dee’s thread (especially the part where he cried from the beauty of the place), just gave me new ideas for my next vacation.
