Next one is a phone panorama from Europe.
Its not from a walk, but was the result of a curious funicular ride.

That's a good question. It's part of the Schengen area but it's a long way offshore from mainland europe. For the purposes of this submission to the competition, yes.

This is a natural lake on a Great Walk which can vary a lot as to the lake levels.

It's Lake Mackenzie on the Routeburn. I was holding off as I don't have many good international photos at the moment - so I'll throw it open for anyone to go next (assuming I guessed correctly?)

Yeh I was holding off too... I think McKenzie has been featured on here a few times? To keep it going I'll post a similarly popular NZ location :Image

OK I'll surrender this. It's the Clinton River on the Milford... Not far upstream from the bridge near Glade hut. Someone else can post

You need to work it a bit.
Offer some subtle clues now and then to attract the rodents from their holes.
And not get too worried if it takes a long time.
I had actually figured this one out - but others need to get involved.

See how this goes, I'm travelling at present, literally at sea and in a different time zone, pitching and rolling somewhat.
Access might be intermittent. Haven't been here but coincidentally had breakfast this morning with people who have.
I'll try Pinnacle Rock on Isla Bartolome, Galapagos Islands (I didn't get help with the answer).

Time for a clue. Also don't forget that the rules allow you to ask questions about the photos.
There is some history around here.
