New Zealand - accidentally climbing a mountain!

... up at 5:30am the next morning so we got our stuff ready and got an early night. Now for those of you who like Lord of the Rings, this crossing is where Mount Doom is, along with some other mountains and craters. It is optional if you want to climb to the top of Mount Doom or the other one (Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro) and after speaking to people who did it the day before, just the crossing alone was bad enough, sorry should say 'challenging' enough. So Emma and I ...

... eruption just about 8 years ago. We were running low on water so we decided to head down from there. It took 3 1/2 hours total for us. It normally takes takes people 7 or more hours to do the whole thing. We found out later that what we did was harder since the bus takes people to a much higher starting point than where you finish and it's easier doing it the other way. Oh well. At least we didn't get stranded.

... around here then for a picnic! Crikey. Luckily the last half hour or so of the hike was shaded, through thick bush, so this was a relief for our poor little overheated heads.

... The super hot steam is used to not only heat stones in a spa pool but used to seriously generate power. The naturally occurring scalding water heated underground by volcanic activity is used to generate power. The site in Taupo is massive and I am informed that it generates 80% of the power used in North Island. The operation is advertised by clouds of steam rising in the air as you get nearer. The size of the operation is impressive and awesome with ...

... rooms we went for a walk to find a place to dine tonight. We came across a "Hole in One Golf Competition", hitting balls onto a platform on the lake. Needless to say both Allan and Paul had to have their little golf fix. They didn't manage a hole in one but they both hit the platform many times! I expect they will have another go tomorrow!! We had a really lovely meal in a restaurant called Grill @ 42 where the owner gave us a list of things we could do tomorrow. Watch this ...
