New Zealand’s Emerald Lakes

zealands-emerald-lakes

“The Tongariro National Park was New Zealand’s first national park as well as one of the earliest in the world. If you have time to spare, the Tongariro Northern Circuit is one of New Zealand’s ”5 Great Walks” and is a stunning 5 day hike around and through the volcanic massif. A shorter alternative would be the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, which is an equally breathtaking 1 day hike between Tongariro and Ngauruhoe up to the famous green emerald lakes (the name is well deserved). Just be aware that although this is a relatively easy hike, it is still some 20 km long and quite steep in places.” w/ photos

Whispering Wall?

“This is one take. I walk 500 feet across this old dam and you can hear me all the way across. No microphones, nothing. The shape of the dam makes it a tourist draw in South Australia where you can hear your voice all the way across.” — David Cooper
