Blowin' in the Wind

I'm not real great with heights, but I walked up to the top of this observation tower at the local state park. Did you know that perfectly secure structures sway when you get up that high? Woooooh! That's a little freaky. Funny how you forget your science until you get up there. Plus, the stairs were open, so I could see the ground getting further away with each step. However, the view is gorgeous up there. Contrary to popular belief, Nebraska is actually really pretty. A little flat, and it's still the middle of nowhere, but it's pretty.

Still, I was happy to be on the ground again.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to resist doing a couple of drop tests off the tower.

Um no. That would not have been cool with me. I would have gotten half way up and then slid down the steps on my ass. Brave woman.
