I think I know this one. Daleys flat bridge (not too far before the hut), across the dart river?

Yes, that’s it. I didn’t need to cross this bridge as part of the Rees-Dart track - it looks quite intimidating!

I've not crossed it either, but I hear the tramping goes up a few notches in difficulty on the other side.
Staying in NZ. One of my all-time favourite spots.

I believe that may be Stirling Castle in the background.

We can't seem to tempt any newcomers, so here goes again.
I have never visited Japan but my research is telling me this is from within the Wada House in Shirakawa-go.
It is a Gassho-zukuri farmhouse owned by the Wada family, one of the wealthiest families and village leaders of Ogimachi.

Correct norts. Something of a bushwalkers/hikers paradise.
We were staying within walking distance so I was tempted into buying a few things.

Never been there, I googled REI/Starbucks. I have been to a few of their stores.
Where is this Wally, some where in the USA for sure.

Looks like no other takers.
Bridge of the Gods between Washington and Oregon states near North Bonneville, also part of the PCT route I believe.
Apparently named after a historic land bridge on the Columbia River.
I hope you're not on the actual roadway with 2 lanes of traffic bearing down! :)
