    On a trip to Chattanooga, TN in 2011 we took the Incline Railway up Lookout Mountain!

    It seems like posing on precipices has been a popular pastime as that picture of Lookout Mountain shows. When I was at Grand Canyon a few years ago, there are folks who similarly pose as close to the edge as possible.

    Nice photos, Sara; since they're not recent ones, please look for my usual weekly feature Throwback Thursday where I usually post one of my "oldies" and invite others to share theirs too. Welcome to the forums!

    We have been to the Grand Canyon several times and have ridden the mules down to Phantom ranch. A great ride and a great time, but some of the tourists get really crazy and dangerous with their selfies! Perhaps they should read the book "Over The Edge, Life and Death In Grand Canyon" before they pose again!
