Do you like heights?

Me and hubby were up high on the edge of the Columbia River Gorge. The road had nothing but very sheer rock under it, like almost undercutting the road, and about a 200 ft drop or more.

Love heights! They make me feel more alive. I regularly free-climb the cliffs along the coast but the drop in that video of yours is breathtaking! Makes me want to flyyyyyyyy!

Nopenopenopenope. Nope. That view is beautiful, but my stomach dropped as soon as the camera showed the angle down.

My family was in Las Vegas in March and we decided to go to the Grand Canyon. This oh-so-attractive expression does not actually show how nauseated I felt whenever I looked down.



Oddly enough, I want to go hang-gliding at some point in my life.. hm. Should be interesting.

But, my view was absolutely nothing compared to this hike in Spain. It is the scariest hike in the world.

WARNING: if you truly have a fear of heights, do not watch this.

I love the Columbia River Gorge! Heights...not so much.
I think it's the guard rail that makes it "ok", drop offs without a guard rail give me the jitters.

Also, hold on a second, you came down to the Columbia River Gorge and didn't come see Lacey and I? What is this?

Oh, me oh my. I am SO, SO sorry. Where are you again? Gresham?

We were on the Washington side mostly but stayed one night in Hood River. It was a very rushed trip. Can I come next time?

Heights make me sick,literally. I wouldn't call it a fear of heights,because I don't really feel scared,but whenever I'm up high,I get terribly dizzy and light headed,can't keep my balance,nauseated,and sometimes my eye sight goes weird. It's almost like motion sickness, (which I do have really bad) but in relation to heights. It's weird..It is a shame though,because I'm sure the view from up on high is awesome.

I literally cannot watch that video of the scary hike without getting sick to my stomach. I cannot conceive how ANYONE would do that by choice.

No worries, I'll probably find it in my heart to forgive you prettttyyyy soon...

But yes! Please do come see us if you end up with time, and all, on your next trip. :) Lacey wants to meet HF-ers and Lady, well, she wants to meet everyone on the planet.
And yep! We're in Gresham, basically right in the center of the city/town (I dunno what Gresham is classified as...)! Haha
