What follows is a video of someone traversing part of Caminito del Rey (the King's Little Pathway), one of the world's most stupidly dangerous hikes. According to Wikipedia's article (insert praise of Wikipedia here), Caminito del Rey was built between 1901 and 1905 as a walkway to service a hydroelectric plant (I didn't know they had hydroelectricity in the early 1900s - did you?) and renamed in honor of King Alfonso XIII's trip along the road in 1921.
Caminito del Rey has seen better days. The three foot wide walkway is missing a safety rail in most places, leaving nothing between a hiker and a 984-foot fall but balance and chutzpah. In some places there are holes, and a few sections have fallen away completely, leaving hikers to walk along the underlying metal structure, balance-beam style. There's a safety cable, but the walkway has still claimed several lives. The Spanish government has closed the walkway, but you know
Your instructions are to:
- Watch the video (it's really, really cool).
- Tell me what it inspires you to create - a story, a game, a character, rpg or otherwise - and maybe leave some of said creation in the comments.
And that's it. Here's the video:

By the way, Burning Zeppelin Experience's Google Analytics data hit an all-time low yesterday, so I'd appreciate the comments, even if you haven't got anything to say. I don't want to whine (too much) and it's not like I'm going to quit or anything, but it was discouraging, and I'd appreciate the boost.
