Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

It looks like a real rush. I went to the Banff Mountain Film Festival on Wednesday and they had a film about 3 of the best BASE jumpers in the world jumping into the biggest sink hole in the world for the first time. Incredible.

I'd go on it, but it has gotten so STUPID expensive to go up the tower it's not
worth going. And now they raised the price again.

Do they have that up there now?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
