Photo of the Day (10/12/06)

Wow, check out the little man working his way up the side of the mountain. According to teokaye who captured this image in the hills of Afghanistan, the man is working his way up an owring–a “donkey-highway” built into the side of the cliff with mud, stones and sticks. As you might imagine, such ancient engineering can be quite dangerous.
It sure makes for a wonderful photo, though!
