The water trickles down the ridges and disappears at the bottom.
Around here the water would turn to ice and you would be stuck at the bottom.

While traveling on the western shore of New Zealand we took a small twisty road up to the head lands of the western access to the harbour at Auckland. This access is not used as much as the eastern entrance due to sand bars .
They might have a small erosion problem.

This is a kea, the snow parrot of New Zealand. We saw them on our way to Milford Sound. They weren't playing in the snow, unfortunately they were mooching food from us humans

I know I'm a little odd, well a bit weird maybe, but this just cracked me up.
Well doctor, I was just looking for the toilet and now I have this dandruff problem. The glow keeps me awake at night.

Anne is about 5'9". The "flower" is over 20 feet tall.
So much for your 3-4 foot ones in North America.
As long as it doesn't start saying "feed me".

Not my best photo, but the best I got of this bird.
They move a lot and boy, do they move fast.
They hop around, spread their wings and fan their tail, supposedly to flush out insects.
I think they want to be peacocks when they grow up.

Slightly inebriated, but happy.
If you recognize them say hi for me.
Met on the docks at Darling Harbour, Sydney.

It was storming the day we went. This sailing ship was trying to get into the dock. It eventually made it, but it was a challenge.
If you look in the background you will see a small water taxi of the type we took.
A wild ride, we weren't sure if Anne could get off the boat as it was pitching so badly.
