Stairway to Heaven in Lampang?

Stairs, stairs and more stairs. Some 600 steps later and still not a complaint to be heard from either of us as we reached the top peak of the mountains surrounding our city of Lampang. On top lays a beautiful temple and a great seating area to watch the sun set behind the mountains. I think it might have been all the dogs walking with us up the stairs that fueled our energy to keep the hike. I do have to admit we had to take a couple of breaks along the way at some rest spots the Monks were so kind to provide for visitors to their temple at the top of the mountain.

As you can see from the picture burning is the only method for many people in their trash removal. Also, if you look off to the left you can see the down pour that was moving into the city and had Renee and I running down the steps in an effort to beat it back to our place. Safe to say we didn’t make it and both ended up drenched to the bone.
