How to recursively get parent nodes until top of tree is reached?

I have the following XML as example:


<Menu Name="home" Text="Home" NavigateUrl="/tmc" Visible="True" >
     <Menu Name="sites" Text="Control Sites" NavigateUrl="/tmc/sites.aspx" PageTitle="Monitor Control Sites" Visible="True">          
          <Menu Name="br" Text="Brisbane" NavigateUrl="locations.aspx?site=br" Visible="True">

                             ....this can keep going 'n' levels deeper
          </Menu>
    </Menu>
</Menu>

Now, if I was in the deepest child node in the tree (for example sake), how can I recursively navigate to each parent node (ie parent of current, parent of current, parent of current and so on).

Cheers.

XmlNode [] nodes = NodeIterator.GetNodesArray(doc.SelectSingleNode("//Menu[@NavigateUrl='locations.aspx?site=br']"));
