Tuesday Tourist

Does anyone remember "Wide World of Sports" from the 70's? Remember "The agony of defeat" - when the skier has a really bad wipe out coming down the ramp? Well here is the ramp near Innsbrook, Austria.

A closer view from near the bottom where they land.

This is the view on the walk up to the ramp. They said the last thing the ski jumpers see before they leave the ramp is...........an old cemetery at the bottom of the hill in town. It was a really neat cemetery, alot of wrought iron, fancy grave markers, but I wouldn't think it would be neat as the last thing you see before you go off of the jump!
