The world’s tallest bonfire

Time for a little relief from politics.

The world’s tallest bonfire was lit on June 25, 2016, on an artificial island off Alesound, Norway, in honor of the annual spring Sankthans festival, which honors John the Baptist.

The bonfire was made of wooden pallets stacked 155 feet high.  Somebody had to light it from the top and scramble down.  It must have been a sight to see up close.
