Tongariro /part 2
Last year we were unable to walk the complete crossing due to volcanic activity, so this year we decided to start the walk from the other side. This is not a popular option as it starts 500m lower , but it works in our favour as we are passed by walkers on their way down whereas last year we were overtaken by walkers on their way up. . … For some reason we didn't start the 20km walk until 1pm which also worked in our favour, the evening light was stunning. .
Our stylish accommodation at the Top 10 campsite, Ohakune (carrot capital of the world, NZ, theres even have an annual Carrot Carnival)
Nearly there. ..
