Up in the mountains of Papua New Guinea, you need a walking bridge to cross a fast flowing stream.

I'm always impressed by the construction of bridges and how they can be found in the most challenging places. Thanks, Ann.

Ah Ngao said...

that's a nice and strong looking bridge - probably made of iron wood(from the color).i always associates P.N.Guinea with cannibalism becoz of a film i watched when i was a teenager.hopefully there ain't this stuff happenings deep in the jungle,eh?

A bridge that lead us to a Happy Sunday.

VioletSky said...

It is all in perspective - unlike Ah Ngao, I saw this as looking a bit precarious!

Fantastic. I'd be a bit afraid to cross it but I'm sure it's worth the while!

The stream looks lovely. I bet it is a pleasant walk through the woods.

Nice photo! Stream looks great.

The bridge looks a bit risky! Great shot though :D

Al said...

Great shot - I love bridges like this, lots of fun to see and cross.

Kathy said...

Ann - what a lovely scene. The bridge appears to have chicken wire over the planks. Do you know why?
Re: your comment on my blog about fingerling potatoes. They are small, long and gnarly, looking much like fingers. They are just regular-tasting potatoes; only their shape is different. Thanks for your visit.

Papua New Guinea is a very nice place to visit. I'd love to go back someday.

"How many horses were there? Did you frighten the horses when you drove past?" I don't know how many and I don't think I scared them.

Magpie said...

A wonderful bridge and I too admire the ingenuity of people who construct bridges. This one would probably scare me to cross. It's lovely.

I like those kinds of bridges, no wading in the water!

I like that kind of bridges. There is soemthing special about them.

Oh, yes, we have a lot of water lilies. Mostly white and yellow. Rarely there are also some red ones. :)

Ann said...

I think, I mean I think, chicken wire is used in many timber walk ways to make it less slippery,

When I was young in Borneo, I was wary of walking on such walkways over creeks. Sometimes the timber is rotten and I might just the unlucky person to step through and fall in.

That's a lovely spot! I would really love to visit Papua New Guinea!
