Title: Taranaki

Wonders never cease in New Zealand. . .. 


Surrounded by fertile plains , the volcanic cone of Mt Taranaki looms like a temple in the desert. It last erupted 350 yrs ago and is due another. Although it only 2518m to the summit Taranaki has claimed 60 lives, not to be taken lightly.
