Daily Southtown article

Check out the Daily Southtown newspaper's article about Swallow Cliff's staircase:

I have to call BS on the height of the stairs. Our great friend Tom G had a survey crew measure the rise to be 75.69 feet. Far from the article's stated 185 feet. If you don't believe me, take this estimate: For it to be even 126 feet, each step would have to average 12 inches. We all know that to be FAR from reality. For it to 185 feet tall, the average step height would have to be over 17". Definitely not the case!!!

Regardless of the falsehood, this article is sure to gather more interest out there.

I saw this article today and meant to email it to you. Not a bad read and a nice plug for the stairs.
