Granted, painting the gable 35 feet up in the air does not compare to climbing Mount Everest, but heck, you still have a great view (to the left, the Shawangunk Ridge, or just The Gunks, in the far distance The Catskills):
And as they always tell you: Never look down! ... ;-)
We are on our final push to finish up painting, at least anything that requires the aerial lift, because it is going back on Wednesday. I'll post pictures of the place tomorrow.
