Sturkey stands on the pinnacle
of Marble Mountain, surrounded by Japanese tourists (young
children, mostly) who also completed the climb. The view takes
one’s breath away. To the north are Monkey Mountain and the
former Marine helicopter base. To the northwest is the city of
Da Nang. To the far west are the jungles and mountains. To the
southwest one can see past An Hoa to the rugged Que Son
Mountains. Directly south lies the fertile rice basin.
Immediately to the east is the Ocean. Breathtaking!
