not too far from where I live a walk way through the tree canopy has been built, here are some shot taken a couple of years ago with our canon A10





hubby took this one of me looking goofy







its a long way up and the bridge sways in the wind, they close it in bad weather. One man fell from it during the building phase and died.

Sorry i thought you'd have heard of it. It's a British tv show where they get some celebritys and stick them in the Aussie bush for a couple of weeks. They have to earn food by completng tasks like eating bugs and stuff. The viewers have to ring in and vote for who they want to stay in and when someone gets voted off they leave the camp by crossing a treetop bridge to get back to civilisation. :-)

Very cool. Seems somewhat reminiscent of James Bond: Goldeneye.

Now that... would be something I'd get into. My fiancee on the other hand. Hehe. That is really cool. I hadn't even though about that idea before. I wonder if there are any places in my neck of the woods that have built something similar to that. That would be really neato.

In America and Australia it's called Survivor. It's amazing how many people die when building things like this and it doesn't get reported. People have died constructing the Wembley.
