Acrophobia is the fear of heights. We certainly hope you don’t
have it. If so, a trip to the Zhangjiajie and Tianmen mountains in
China’s Tianmen Mountain National Park may not be advised. However,
if scenic routes that will get your heart racing and truly
exhilarating views are what you are after, then this may be for you.
The appropriately named Walk of Faith is a glass walkway that is
exactly what it says on the tin. Save for the hand rails and metal
and concrete supports, the 61 ft. walkway up the side of the
mountain is entirely glass, allowing walkers to view the staggering
height they are at, right beneath their feet, which is some 4,700
ft. above sea level.

Cool idea, but in a word: OH XXXX NO!

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
