Oddly enough these pictures were taken during this time last year.

Okay so I've always wanted to climb construction cranes for the view and I got a pretty sweet view from this one, even though it was roughly 100-120 feet tall. It was on an active hospital property here in the great city of El Paso, Texas. Climbing the thing was the biggest rush, I was suprised at how fast I got up to the top. These photos aren't the best by any means and this is going to be a very short egg....err "story".

It was just an addition to the hospital, I took an un-guided tour of the construction site after climbing down from the crane and it wasn't that interesting. Below is a screenshot from bing.com/maps:

The yellow outline is the construction site and the orange thing is an estimate on where I thought the crane was. The red is where this cop parked for like 20 minutes when I was at the top, don't know what that fool was doing. Didn't snap a picture of it just kept my eye on him.

The photos explain themselves for the most part.

The mountain range in the distance is the Franklin Mountains

I wish it was taller but most of the buildings here in El Paso aren't that tall. I could have done a better job with the photos but I feel I've been losing my touch since I joined the Army, haven't found the time for photos really.
