Apr 25th, 2016: Stairs
Honey, I'm home.
Rough day, Dear?
Terrible, I'm dead on my feet. I need a beer.
There's some cooling in the water down stairs.
Oh crap, none up here?
No, it's chilling in the cold water.
According to this Boston lawyer...
So don't fret the danger of alcohol... unless you're using the stairs.
•Over 1 Million injuries occur each year as the result of stairway falls.
•Staircase and stairway accidents constitute the second leading cause of accidental injury, second only to motor vehicle accidents.
•Each year, there are 12,000 stairway accident deaths.
This link tells about these stairs in Portugal.

I bet the views from the decks/turnabouts are unbelievably spectacular...and my knees are screaming bloody murder just looking at this.

The link says 8km.
You don't see this kind of thing a lot in the USA. We have dirt trails a lot, and overlooks near the parking lots, and occasional short boardwalks here and there. But I can think of only a few examples of this kind of heavy duty infrastructure for pedestrians more than 1,000 meters from a parking lot.
A few nice trails in the Watkins Glen area, some Everglades boardwalks. That's about all I can think of. There are plenty of short 100 meter long boardwalks going through marshes and such, we have a handful of those locally. But nothing close to 8 km that I can think of.
I approve of this.
Reminds me of a waterfall area in the former Yugoslavia. Plitvica Jezera, or something like that.

Yellowstone has a lot of boardwalks to keep the fools out of the hot water/mud. The total length is pretty big, but they're spread around the park.
