The Auckland Skytower

This was quite an be up 220 m (roughly 721 feet) and see all of Auckland was simply breathtaking ! It was a beautiful clear day and we could see all around. The Harbour Bridge, that takes us to my sister's home; Rangitoto, a dormant volcano that erupted about 600 years ago; the Auckland Museum, where we were yesterday; and One Tree Hill, where one lonely tree stood until a Maori chopped it down in protest.

Rebekah & I enjoying the view

One last fun view from up top is standing on a glass block, that is as thick as a cement block, and looking down to the ground below. It gave me a new appreciation for how high we really were.
