Colombian view

By Karuma1970

I loved this view. The steep valley sides of this area of Colombia make for spectacular views and very hard work getting anywhere. That farmhouse may not look far but you canít even see the bottom of the valley between where I was standing and the building. The solution?

Version 1 shows La Garrucha.
A locally made cable car, this box is powered by an old truck engine and hauled along two cables high above the valley bottom to the other side where you are surrounded by coffee and plantain farms. You get great views and there are snacks and cold beers for sale when you arrive.

Both very beautiful images. The lift would not work for those who might not like tight confined quarters.
