Mangapohue Natural Bridge

Hubby took me on a day-out up around Waitomo and Marokopa.  Among the many finds was this Natural Bridge. It's impossible to get all the majestic beauty in one shot (even by others on the internet), but here are some that we took.




This is the view looking up from the highest point. If you look closely at the following photo, you can see what appears to be stalactites, They are apparently called biokarst, although I can't find any specific information on that term.



Hubby finds the coolest places!!

Interesting that plant life is needed for these cone deposits to form. What a fantastic place to go hiking at!
