Scary Bridge

This can’t be happening?! I’ve had bad dreams almost exactly like this.


Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope!

There was some hyperventilation. Some attempts and then turn backs. A lot of help from Craig, and eventually I made it across the bridge. It’s 140 meters high. That’s 460ft.

After the first one, there were 4 more a lot like it, but slightly less high and long. Amazingly I got better at crossing them as the days went by. I even came to respect them as an impressive structures. It’s over now, so that’s good. I know it’s good to get out of your comfort zone every now and then. Man o’ man, that was some tough stepping for me to get through.DSC05186[1]P1010359

  1. Hi Shayla! I’ve been intending to check out your blog, and I finally did it! I’m sitting here in my warm house with a snowy Minnesota evening outside. I’ve been reading your recent entries, and also entries from your previous hikes. It sounds like you’re having quite the adventure (again) 🙂 New Zealand is obviously a gorgeous country. Natural beauty is so inspiring and breathtaking. Hope you’re doing well and staying healthy. I’ll keep checking up on your travels! It was great working with you for the short time you were with us!
