Sunset over Tongariro & Ngauruhoe II
Grrr… not sure what is going on with WordPress these days. This is the second time recently that I’ve published a post and it came up empty… and of course, no way to recover the text of my utterly brilliant missive… No doubt operator error – I’ve only done a thousand of these… Grrr…
It’s been that kind of day to be honest – I come home yesterday from a perfect weekend away at Tongariro National Park, and today the bloody volcano erupts! I feel so robbed… It was completely quiet and peaceful when we were there, with no rumblings or indications of pending eruption. I’m having a good long chat with the Universe tonight – I thought we were a lot closer than this. Surely I should have been informed.
In any case, that is Tongariro on the left and Ngauruhoe on the right – sunset on Saturday night.
On Sunday, Bobby and I were on Tongariro, checking out the Tongariro Crossing, one of the great treks here in New Zealand, 19.4 kilometres (~12 miles) of rugged, avalanche prone, windswept winter walking, which, to be honest, is not my cuppa tea. So we did the first bit and took some photos. See?
