Imagine Highs and Lows

How would you like to see the Grand Canyon?


Down low, on foot or on horseback ...




Or from up high ... through a glass floor?




Would you dare to walk out on that glass floor? Or would you rather feel the ground under your feet? Which would you choose?

Oooh - very interesting! Both - I'd love to check out that glass floor up way high, and I'd certainly like to hike it, too! :)

Well for once I'm not waffling. I would have to hike it..touch the earth without a doubt. I would love to check out that cool glass floor on the way out though!

Felicia Kramer said...

I'd like to do both too - but I don't think my back could no longer handle the down low. I know some people with fear of heights who won't go near that glass floor!

Felicia Kramer said...

Correction: I would like to do both but my back can't handle the down low. :)

I would love to be on a very sure footed horse winding my way down into the canyon. That way I would see everything up close and personal. I would never ever ever walk out on that thing! I don't even like bridges. It can start hyperventilating just thinking about it! :)

Pretty sure I would not do the bridge thing. . . now, give me a glass-bottomed boat in the Caribbean!!!

And a double yes to having a surefooted horse to carry me down into the canyon . . .

Oh how scary!! I'd have to take the glass floor, if only to experience that incredible rush of adrenaline. :)

Loved this one, Felicia!

Personally, I like the ground under my feet.

Felicia Kramer said...

I'm with you, Amanda, I would like to try the glass floor just to feel the rush.

Hello, hello, hello all you wonderful TSTers!! I'm just checking in and saying hi. Felicia I love this one the photos are stellar. I, too, would need the glass floor adrenaline rush but I would also love to hike and feel the Earth. This is so great. Thanks again Felicia love to you and all you guys. I miss you see you soon!

Ooo - the glass thing would FREAK me out!

Felicia Kramer said...

Hi Natasha! Great to see you here but hope you're not cheating on your "time out." See you back here soon - it's not the same without you.

I've always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I'm terrified of heights so I think I'll pick the safe, feet solid ground trip.

I have hiked the Grand Canyon several times, never ALL the way down. I would not want to ride the mules, although I understand they are very safe. I like using my own feet. I haven't been to the glass floor area, but I would walk on it. It might seem freaky at first, but I think I would get used to it.

Amanda Fall - PersistentGreen said...

Yay, hi, Natasha! I'm not surprised, you little daredevil. :) Hope you're having a FANTASTIC time!

I would try it...I wish it was there when I went (on my honeymoon), my hubby on the other hand said "not a chance!".

Greetings!

OMG! I didn't even know such a thing existed. I'm so glad it either wasn't there when I visited there as a child, or my parents didn't know about it. I have acrophobia (fear of falling), so unless I have metallic wings around me, or until I grow the feathered kind in reality, I'll stay on the earth, thank you very kindly! :-D

So, of the two, I'd take some deep breaths and trust the mules. Can't be any worse than some of the other faith-based moving I'm doing of late, can it? :-D

BB & GF! :-)
