Lake Rotokura

A sacred lake to Maori. It supposedly has healing waters but I was too nervous of giardia to try it on my tooth. On good days you can see the mountain reflected in the lake.

You must pick up leaves or rocks to take home apparently.

End of the lava flow

Yes we went walking in this misty rain. The things you do in search of a photo! This is the Taranaki Falls walk on Mt Ruapehu.

On the way to Taranaki Falls

My usual view of Rod as he strides ahead in search of his photographic goal while I trudge along behind with the kids. Charming weather no?

Lake Taupo (southern end) & surrounds

Turangi off the right, Tokaanu to the right. Power station just to the right - you can see the tailrace curving round the conical hill in the foreground. Great cloudscape that my happy snappy can't capture, but Rod's more sophisticated equipment did.

Frog @ Lake Rotopounamu

See him? He's pretty camoflaged. We think it's a Southern Bell Frog - an introduced species.

Lake Rotopounamu

Much better photo when it's not directly into the light. You can see why it got it's name of "greenstone lake"

Sleeping beauty

Ghastly picture of me. I never look my most glam when tramping. Tim looks like he's eaten magic mushrooms. Lydia is asleep in the backpack - how can she do that!? Must get a crick in her neck.
