Excellent!!! Love the mountains in the background and the way you can see the buildings way below! I don’t think I would have wanted to be on those tracks, hanging on the hillside like that! :-)
Back in the 40s, gold was a way of life. I guess they would do whatever they had to. Beautiful place – I just came back from there, again!
