I’d visit, but they’d have to helicopter me in (and out). Photographer Philip Lee Harvey, however, was undaunted by the climb and the nerve-wracking “bridges” that are literally an old dead tree laid across a dizzying abyss. I don’t think he found God up there, but at least daredevils like him are rewarded with lovely frescoes and magnificent views.
