          Nice place. Very quiet.

          This was a nice hotel. Nothing fancy but being made entirely from wood makes it a bit different.

          ... the mountains for a few hours, stopping at the top for a bit where there was a beautiful view. There was a baby lamb running around with no mum, so Tash radioed down to the farm, who said they had the mother there, so Tash caught the lamb and carried it back with her on the horse. Of course, we all had pictures with the lamb on our horses too. We then trekked back down to the stables. It was only a ...

          ... travelling among hardy wind-blown vegetation. The volcanoes loomed on our right side and the mist slowly drifted towards us. It started raining as we passed through Waiouru. Heading east the scenery changed again. There were forest plantations and, surprisingly, pastureland again. We arrived at Ohakune five hours after we had set off from Rotorua. Normally it's a 3 hour trip, but we didn't mind taking our time to enjoy a few stops along the ...

          ... mountain to help us ascend. Once we got to the top of red crater, there was actually no snow! It's volcanic, and sulfur steam is continuously being released, melting all the snow on top--it's weird being on the top of a mountain that's radiating heat (and a little smelly). This was the highest point: 6,188 feet. On the way back down, we passed the Emerald and Blue lakes (frozen over, but I could kind of make them out...), and the Katetahi Hot Springs (which ...

          ... there were already people starting the walk when we got there so any thoughts we'd had about securing a space then having a snooze in the car went out the window, we were too excited and wanted to start too! So in the dark we changed, ate breakfast then warmed up with some comical stretching before setting off at 6.30am for our day's adventure!

          We hadn't got more than a few meters into the walk when ...

          ... and strictly speaking, since we didn't camp on our tramps, maybe they didn't quite qualify, but our partial ascent of Mount Ruapehu felt very much like tramping to us! We took the chair lift up to 2020m then climbed another 280m on the Skyline Route, marked by poles, over rocky terrain and scree to a ...
