Stairway to Exhaustion

2 Apr

Hua Shan, outside Xi’an, China

And I thought the hike to Three Sisters was tough…  Never had have legs shaken from fear (I’m terrified of heights) and exhaustion (the stairs were so high, narrow, and steep) as they did then, but these steps at Hua Shan make the ones at Blue Mountain seem like nothing.  It must feel amazing to make it all the way to the top and back though.  What a challenge!

    Just looking at the stairway makes my legs shake. When I was climbing the ruin at Coba in Mexico, I started hyperventilating. No–those stairs are out for me.
