I think I took that picture.

Yes, he made it, after he stopped and turned the bike around.

That entrance is pretty spectacular and photogenic in the early morning - am sure many (most?) travellers finding themselves there in the early dawn light end up stopping for a photo.

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Who / where? Any link to the RR please? Looks like an interesting landscape - although I'm sure there was some blood and sweat involved!

Thanks LuckyStriker. Maybe I won't go browse all his RRs, the man is a prolific writer. (Although maybe 2005 was a quiet year...)

Uhm, guys, this thread isn't so much for panorama pictures as for finding out the story behind any of the "random" three little pictures that appear at the top of each WD page...  ::)
