THE SHORT BUT EVENTFUL LIFE OF HURRICANE IKE

 

Image of Hurricane Ike on September 10, 2008, taken by the crew of the International Space Station, flying 220 miles above Earth. Ike barrelled into the densely populated Texas coast near Houston early September 13, 2008, bringing with it a wall of water and ferocious winds and rain that flooded large areas along the Gulf of Mexico and paralysed the fourth-largest U.S. city.

The King's Pathway

Just watching this video is scary ... I definitely wouldn't want to walk this walkway.

El Caminito del Rey ( The King's pathway ) is a walkway now fallen into disrepair, pinned along
the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in Málaga, Spain.

The walkway has gone for years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated
and precarious state.It is only one meter in width, and is built over a 700-meter ( 2,296-foot )
sheer drop. Over time it has also lost most of its handrail.

Once you get to the website and click the 'Play' button - if you can you should go to full screen to get the full effect !!
