Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Way Up There

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, I looked up pictures that I took looking up! Here are the results:

I don’t know the name of this building in Chicago, but I like its design.

Last but not least, here is my favorite of all! I was fascinated by a species of pine tree found only in the region around the state of Paraná, Brazil. Its scientific name is araucaria but people there call it pinheiro paranaense (pine tree of Paraná). The native people of this region, a tribe of the Tupi-Guaraní, called it curi, which is how Curitiba got its name!

    1. Yes, I believe so although I’ve never been up there. I just thought it was pretty amazing to see a walkway up so hogh, but perhaps the people who walk it every day don’t think about it (and maybe they don’t look down)!
