10 Places To See Before You Die.

The Glass Walkway At China’s Tianmen Mountain Park.

A new trail path in China’s Tianmen Mountain National Park offers visitors an unusual experience: the floor and rails of the pathway are composed of glass, offering walkers a vertigo-inducing look at the sheer drops and wilderness below.  The walkway spans three feet wide, composed of glass 2.5-inches thick.  Measuring approximately 200 feet (61 meters) long, the walkway is raised almost a mile into the air at about 4700 feet
(1430 meters), inviting comparisons to the Grand Canyon ‘Skywalk’ in Arizona, USA. The passage joins the west cliff at the Yunmeng Fairy summit, where Tianmen Mountain and Zhang Jiajie meet.  Visitors to the Tianmen Mountain Bridge are requested to wear shoe covers to keep the glass transparent and clean.

The Perfect Zombie Proof House.

My good friend Carlos C. and I have a deep routed affinity for the AMC show “The Walking Dead”, and after watching the very intense season 2 finale, I stumbled across something interesting.  Situated deep within the Adirondack State Park in Upstate New York, this cabin was built atop a cold-war era missile silo and is currently on the market for only $1.75 million dollars. It’s basically perfect for surviving any sort of end of the world scenario… inlcuding zombies.

As the pictures progress, you are seeing deeper and deeper into the house’s structure.

Carlos, lets go halves on this spot… Just incase.
