That's a radio or TV tower. It's 304 meters (1000' ) tall. Some are about 1500' tall.

Thanks. That's high!
1500 higher. Wow
Maintenance on them would be interesting.

I give them a wide berth. There are cables, like stays on a ship, that hold them up. They have snagged the occasional plane that ventured too close.

I thought I could see one stay. Also some smaller towers.
Here we have some very large and obvious (to us earth bound mortals :-P) balloons or baubles attached along the stays.

Scary stuff :rolleyes:

They tend to hang "balls" on wires crossing a valley or near an airport. I've not seen them on cable stays yet. They sometimes don't mark them across valleys (passes in the mountains), so I just try to avoid the situation altogether.

It was definitely a good moment for some black and white moodiness on the road to Saksun in the Faroe Islands.

Wow, I've climbed a lot of things but that made my stomach churn just watching the video. No way!!


The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago.
The second best time is now.
