It felt great to get away from the heat, taking refuge inside the weathered old shell of Bodie Island Lighthouse, and it didn't take long for me to be awestruck by the sights. Problem is, the stairs you see here are very old wrought iron created back during the 1870s, when the lighthouse itself was built. The caretakers of the lighthouse had a very strict 'one person per flight of stairs' policy on those attempting to make the climb to the top, and while I did attempt the climb myself, I was thwarted by the powerful feeling of vertigo the experience induced. These stairs, after all, had no backing to them; look down and one can see straight to the bottom, even as the stairs themselves gently swayed with each footstep. While I'd have loved to see the top, I was nonetheless thoroughly satisfied by my time spent at the bottom, looking up into the dizzying spiral above me.
