Or it’s the fires of Mount Doom. Each time we round another bend and think we are at the top, a nearly vertical span of bolder-stairs greets us grinning its stone-toothy smile.

      At the top, the view is amazing and the cool breeze quickly carries away our ...

A quick jaunt across a causeway and an even quicker "right now" ...
