Redwood Tree Walk Part 1

On the evening of our return from the Orakei Korako Geothermal Springs, I was captured by the recommendation to see something called the Redwood TreeWalk in Rotorua, just a short drive from our accommodations at the Regent of Rotorua. From their description, the tree walk is “700-metres long, …consisting of a series of 28 suspension bridges, which traverse between 27 majestic 117-year-old Redwood Trees. The tree walk sits at 20-metres above the forest at its peak and the walkway has been specifically designed and constructed to preserve the trees, plants, and the surrounding natural environment by using a uniquely constructed New Zealand-first technologically designed sling, which is suspended from the Redwood trees. This first post of two is of shots taken while there was still a goodly amount of daylight Additionally, there is all sorts of lighting set up for evening time. This simply sounded too intriguing to pass up, so I headed there with a meat pie to nibble in  the car. I started the walk in the pre-twilight and walked as the evening darkened around me. These shots were taken in enough light so as to be daylight. We can see the way the rope bridges are set up. They will sway a bit as you walk across, but never so much as to be uncomfortable.
