This is one of the rides on top of the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas. Well-named.


Frankly, I can think of nothing I would like to do less. Imagine hanging out over this:


The next shot shows where I dug in my heels and refused to budge. A wimp? Or just sane?


In fact (and I know I risk offending some here), I heartily dislike Las Vegas. It’s a shame I have had to go there twice now, in order to visit the Grand Canyon and other beautiful natural wonders of the American Southwest. But my family enjoyed the rides. The city is just one big theme park to them. 🙂
