Almost there, we get a little breath of fresh air through this tiny window- and a preview of what's to come...   Onward & Upward!

I have always loved these little windows that allow you to peek out onto the world below, Elizabeth. And now you're reminding me of my older brother who always says "Onward & Upward." smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too! That's funny! I hope these are fond memories of your brother!
I'm looking forward to the view from the top (assuming you made it all the way!) I'm guessing that you are not afraid of heights!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I hope you will not be disappointed with the shots I got up top! I LOVE being up high!!!

Oh the dizzying heights, were you scared Elizabeth?
