Here are photos of a beautiful wooden scenic overlook or lookout. It's the Aurland Lookout in Norway.
Curiously, many of the comments about it in the Neatorama blog are negative, as they are at the Toxel.com website. Despite being made of (or sheathed in) wood, people seem to be objecting to it being there at all.
Both sites have lots more photos, best at Toxel.com. You might be wondering what keeps tourists from falling off the edge. It's in the photos.
