Marble Mountain and the steps to Hell!
Marble Mountain if the heat doesn't kill you the climb will. It's not Everest it only feels like it when you get to the top. The steps are not nice clean even steps....they're the steps to hell. Broken, uneven, sharp edges jutting out some high some low and they never stop...like the publishers clearing house envelopes they just keep coming. We had plenty of places to take breaks along the trail and I huffed and puffed my way to the top in record time...not! It is very beautiful and the scenery is lush and the view from the top is spectacular. Bich shouldn't have worn white but she should have known better, never where white on safari or mountain climbing expeditions. We had a nice break at the bottom when I bought some marble trinkets from the locals. They guaranteed me they were of the best quality and that their own brother had carved them. $20us I got it for $18 on sale...special today.
