This is the pathway that takes you to the very top of the Kansas Capitol Building. Oncethere you can step outside to get a great view of the city below.My other post titled "Going up" is aview of the pathway below the inner dome of the building that gets you TO this stairway.

Wow! That looks just plain scary! I am surprised that the dome is constructed of wood. I thought all capitol domes were made of marble.

Being made of wood I guess there are a lot of Hawks around to keep the woodpeckers away.

Looking up at the pathway is more daunting than actually doing it. The outer portion of the dome is made of (very) weathered copper. A hole was actually knocked in the dome during the Topeka tornado in 1966, but the dome as a whole survived just fine.

I don't know. I get chills up my spine just looking at this. Let alone trying to climb it.

Yikes! Patty
