Kakum National Park

So, I said I would post some pictures from Ghana up here. Then my computer died. More accurately, it was electrocuted on a dark and stormy night at the stroke of midnight. Well now, after a month it has arisen from the ashes. And here are some pictures.

This is something called the Canopy Walk. It is a series of swinging bridges suspended 135 feet in the air between giant trees in an old growth rainforest.

What a view!

This is how the bridge was built. It was made from suspended aluminum ladders with planks laid out over the rungs.

I love this picture. This is how the walkway is tied to the cables that it hangs from.

That is pretty awesome. Is this park an eco tourism effort? Is it an environmental protection project? It is gorgeous.
