Spanning over a tributary of the mighty Amazon is a small wooden bridge overlooking Devil Falls. Many adventurers have followed the Crocodile Bridge to their doom as they’ve unknowingly dipped into the nearby pond to cool off after a difficult journey. Unfortunately, hungry crocodiles lie in waiting on the other side of the pond.
Would you believe that there are no bridges that actually cross the Amazon? Many believe it’s because the width of the river is too wide. The actual reason is that there are so few roads along the Amazon, much of the river basin is still unexplored. But tell that to the Lego designer that created 6490 Amazon Crossing, strangely part of the Outback Theme. The set still makes an outstanding jungle adventure set.
It seems I’ve stumbled upon Amazon explorer Noddy’s Crocodile Cliff, home of the fabled Crocodile Hunter. I’ve heard camp fire stories about this legendary hunter who paddles along the Amazon in a Small Steam Boat. The top of the cliff is inhabited by a small clan of natives who for the most part, are fairly peaceful people. What a terrific place! I love the abundance of green foliage and trees.
