Can we get one of those across Zigzag Canyon, please? That's about 500 meters.

We'll just conveniently ignore the fact that the entire south side of Hood is a loose pile of gravel.

In reference to Field of Dreams:

You can build it, I won't cross.

It's as much of a tourist attraction itself as it is a hiking route. I found an article elsewhere that said that prior to construction, it was a two day hike around - obviously they weren't crossing that valley, which looks less intimidating that the Eliot was. Maybe people were hiking across it anyway.
