Danum Valley Canopy Hike
View Larger Map
The Danum Valley Lodge (located in deepest, darkest, Borneo) is an independently owned conservation area in Sabah - it is the singularly most spectacular place to view wildlife on Borneo - but costs an arm and a leg. It is believed that the forest here has never been logged ever. Not even in prehistoric times. It is one of the last primeval places on earth.
This guy tried to cross a bridge that was out
Welcome to the canopy walkway
The canopy walkway was a series of suspension bridges from tree to tree up in the crown of the forest. The idea was to let you see the different biosphere in the canopy of the forest.
On the bridge
The longer the bridge, the more likely it was to twist under you as you walked across it (something that we would later remember as we crossed bottomless gorges in Nepal)
What happened to my hair??
Even bald guys get dates
This is my classic "Big Boss" look - the shaved head and goatee on a big white guy caused most Asian's to confuse me with a WWF star called "Big Boss"
It reminds me of one that my pledge brother Todd Stately had at the TKE house
These pig pictures earned a spot in a scientific journal called "Suiform Soundings" - the first time I have ever been published in a scientific journal.
Looks like I needed to purchase some "Stoking pachats". Literally "leach stockings" in Bahasa, they are special canvas gaiters used to prevent the blood suckers from getting you.
