What magnificent scenery, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Nothing more to say about it, Ray, what a place it is, awe inspiring. I hope we return one day.

Superbe photo mais je ne pourrais pas aller sur cette route, j'ai trop le vertige.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martine, I'm sorry you wouldn't be able to do it.

I see a couple of stretches of safety wall, Frank - is that usual?
Frank L Croston.: It was on this hike, Elisabeth, it is a completely man made path. On the top there are chains fitted to assist you. I said to Elizabeth that if they tried to do this in England there would be an outcry! But without them higher up this would be a climb, not a hike. As it is, people fall off regularly....
Oupsss... impressionnant !!
Magnifique photo
Bonne journée
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Claudine.

What a crazy path Frank, it must be hard coming up.
Frank L Croston.: It was hard work, Andrew, just a long slog up, and you can see how far to go :-(

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, if this bothers you then the last part would FREAK you out! smile

What a path snaking along the cliffs - did you walk this path?
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it great...Yes we did, Philine, this is just the first section of the hike.

That's the easy bit, too! I still regret taking my 8kg camera backpack up with me.
Frank L Croston.: I can see why you would regret that, Alan, don't know about this being the easy bit!

I'll catch up with the video this evening.
Frank L Croston.: I hope you enjoy it, Alan, there is another on 'Youtube' where a woman gets caught in a sudden storm on the top, some great views in it.
I don't even want to think about this grin
Frank L Croston.: Foolishly, I said to Ellie that I didn't get many good shots when we were up the top, so she says we have to do it again then....Me and my big mouth!
What a gorgeous picture. I feel like I am there.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry, I'm glad you like it.

Well worth the scary hike (thanks for taking us there)
Frank L Croston.: It was indeed, my pleasure, Bonnie.
Did you do this same walk as the video shows. Fabulous! What a scene you show.
Frank L Croston.: Yes we did, Mary, it was quite an experience. Thanks.
I can't but agree that the scenery is fabulous but even if I was a fully fit man I couldn't even think about walking that path.
Frank L Croston.: I just got told I was doing it....smile
I would need a mob scooter for this Frank at the moment.
Frank L Croston.: I could have done with one myself....smile
Terrific shot, Frank! I love how you captured the trail... and on down the Canyon! Great video - it was a great hike wasn't it! XOX
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, it certainly was, one of the best!
