I don’t now if anyone has ever calculated the number of bridges per mile of road for countries but, if so, I’d bet that New Zealand is up near the top of that list. This is one of the first that we came across during this last trip to NZ. It set the tone for half of the rest of our pictures: bridge, river, trees, mountains.
and a zoom-in on the bridge itself.
Whoever lives in that house at the top has a hell of a climb down to their boat. Also, note the water level marks on the bridge pontoons!

Clicking on the picture goes to Flickr where there’s a 4096px wide version.
Really must get to NZ in the early spring when valleys like this will be filled with glacial meltwater.
