These are at Mount Cook. The bridges are a walk towards it. Most bridges we saw all had hinged anchors. Maybe for eartquakes? Some of the shots have the kids on them so you can see the scale of things. You could hear the galcier on the montain crack at times but we did not see any ice fall, we missed it.

Good idea. Test the bridges before crossing by getting the kids to do it first

Wahoo, I did it, now here's some more!

The 1st is Butchers Pool, a natural thermal pool near Taupo, next is Castle Point followed by Eastbourne, the jet boat at Huka Falls in Taupo and finally the view from the ski lifts at Mount Ruapehu.

Very good

I do think your pool needs a clean though

Winnie thanks so much for that shot of Gravity Canyon. My husband & then 11 year old did the Flying Fox last year ( I got to babaysit at the bottom with video camera in hand!!) and they both said the view from up top was amazing
