Tokangawhā / Split Apple Rock

Tokangawhā / Split Apple Rock is a geological rock formation in Tasman Bay off the northern coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Made of granite from the cretaceous, it is in the shape of an apple, cut in half; the cleft to produce two sides of the'apple' was a occurring joint. Joints occur in granite and are plains of weakness that rain and waves exploit; the traditional Maori mythological for the formation describes two gods breaking apart the rock. It is a popular tourist attraction in the waters of the Tasman Sea 50 metres off the coast between Kaiteriteri and Marahau; the rock is accessible by wading. It is a point of interest for the many tourist boats and pleasure craft which operate along the shores of the Abel Tasman National Park; the name Split Apple Rock was made official in 1988, was altered to Tokangawhā / Split Apple Rock in August 2014.

Karkopf

The Karkopf is a mountain, 1,738 m, the highest peak of the whole Lattengebirge range in the German state of Bavaria. It lies on the boundary between the municipality of Bayerisch Gmain to the west and the municipality of Bischofswiesen to the east; as a consequence of its good long-distance views over the whole mountain massif, the mountain is a popular walking area. The mountains of Untersberg, Hoher Göll and Watzmann may be seen to the south, the Zwiesel and Hochstaufen to the north; the summit may be ascended from various sides, e.g. via the Predigtstuhl or along the Törlschneid from Winkl. The ascent on the Alpgartensteig path has an easy klettersteig character with several ladders and cables as protection; the route is only suited to experienced mountain walkers, because you need to have a head for heights and sure-footedness. From the top, you can walk to the top station of the Predigtstuhl Cable Car and from there get to the Bad Reichenhall Cable Car, it is possible to walk from the Steinerne Agnes rocks and to the Rotofen rock towers
