Yesterday I said nothing beats driving the country roads of Colorado but, I'd have to say that taking a cable car to the top of Sass Pordoi in the Dolomites of Italy comes very, very close. The cable car climbs 2,625 feet (800 meters) to the top with no support pillars in between. It was an exhilarating ride.
At the top you are 9,678 feet (2950 meters) high and you really do feel like you have arrived at the top of the world. In the top photo you see the cable car station somewhere about half way on the trip up and the photo just above shows the spectacular view in the direction we've just come.
The views in all directions were breathtaking!
