Les Quatre Vents – Cross if you dare

This long and narrow rope bridge spans a wooded ravine at Les Quatre Vents. It may look scary, but it’s worth the trip to the middle, where you’ll spot another whimsical frog in the foliage below. But the best view is in the other direction….we’ll show you that tomorrow!

    Thanks, oldsquaw! I definitely do. Unfortunately, though, I didn't take any of these photos from Les Quatre Vents. I've never been to this awesome garden, but I hope to in the future. One day...
