The short drive from Taupo to Turangi followed Lake Taupo for a lot of the way. It's the caldera of a dormant volcano and is the highlight of ...

... we realised we had 4 more hours to walk and so we were on our way again without stopping so we would make the last bus back into Taupo. 3 hours and 50 minutes later we made it to the end of the Tongairro Crossing with enough dirt in our shoes for a whole farm, blisters galore, cuts, bruises and very sore limbs, joints and muscles but a sense of achievement...

... after the Maori word foam, as it thunders over the edge at such an alarmingly fast rate it was white water the entire time :) After the hike I drove the hour and twenty minutes to the national park hostel, and the beginning of the next adventure! This night consisted of rock climbing in the indoor walls in the hostel, Emily belaying as I climbed and visa versa. It was super fun, even if one track stumped me until I was forced to concede. And tomorrow we race off for a full day ...
