I tried to get a bit of the person next to me in the picture to give you some perspective.
I got really nervous right before we took off since 1) I had forgotten my motion sickness band and 2) I've actually got a pretty strong fear of heights.
Turns out, both were needless. The ride was so smooth and graceful, and as long as I didn't look straight down over the edge, I could make myself forget that there was only a woven basket between me and a several-hundred feet drop to certain death.
Seriously, it was awesome and totally worthwhile. I loved doing it, and I took a LOT more pictures with my real camera.
