7 of the craziest, most dangerous, most dizzying hikes in the world

This is a post from a Smokeysmountain reader way over in the actual Smoky Mountains named Jeff ... Jeff also has a hiking blog called HikingintheSmokys.com                                                                                                                              A couple of weeks ago, Gadling.com posted videos from 7 of the craziest, most dangerous, most dizzying hikes in the world. Gadling bills itself as the world's biggest travel blog, written and edited by travelers.

The posting included a couple of now famous videos such as the hike through Spain's El Caminito del Rey, or the climb up Mount Hua in China. But what really surprised me, as I just discovered this posting this morning, was that Gadling included my video from our hike to Mt. LeConte from a couple of years ago.

I really don't consider the Alum Cave Trail to be among the most dangerous hikes in the world, so I don't necessarily believe my video realy fits in with the other six - but hey, I'll take it! Thank you, Gadling.

Please click here to see all seven videos.
