Heavy rain in the night produced added force for the waterfall to carve it’s smooth curves in the rock below the bridge. With channels as formed as a water slide it almost looked to be a smooth ride up right up until the pulverising on the lower tier. I’ll give it a miss :)
There’s often a high bridge slung over the Waitawheta River (like from where this picture is taken), but it seems where DOC think there’s an easy stepping-stone crossing they haven’t bothered. Problem is with the water levels quite high, there’s not many stepping stones left for us that are high and dry.. Just enough though, we made it through and only fell in once!
