Ken on the edge

Taft Point in Yosemite National Park is high. It's about 2,300 meters (about 7,500 feet) above sea level. The views are dramatic, especially when they include humans for scale. And it can be a little scary. Here are two shots of Ken at the edge.

Ken was "far out," but those other people were even farther. Digitized color slide, August 1998.

  3. Non, merci! I've heard too many horror stories of people who have gone past the limits for a photo and then disaster happened. Nice photo, however.

  4. mitch, I doubt I would today.

    judy, it looks more dramatic than it is, but you still have to be careful.

    mary, I don't remember that we went past any limits (like rails or signs). Still, kind of scary.

    1. Nearly every year someone falls from the edge on the Oregon Coast. There are raillings, signs, even danger signs but still people go out there. I'm glad to hear you guys didn't do that.
