Sunday Post: Stairway

Monks on stairway at Punaka Dzong, Bhutan

Jake’s choice this week is “stairway” … he says “Stairway or simply stairs are names for a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairways may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.” Punaka Dzong is sited on a large curve of the river, so must be built up high in case of flooding. All of the buildings have impressive staircases!

steps follow the tree buttressed tree root down

This stairway is on a narrow walking track that leads into a steep valley in the Gold Coast hinterland … steps have been made against the supporting tree root. Isn’t it beautiful? Finally, here are some ladder stairs … fire-escapes … in New York City.
