Tongariro National Park

New Zealand is very photogenic, I guess wherever you point your camera, you have a great picture.image2

The picture was taken by my wife in the Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, on a day when they hiked for 8 hours.

I have never hiked for 8 hours continuous. To me, it is a big challenge.

Again, the clouds and the lake look fantastic!

  1. At last I’ve been somewhere from this blog. I’ve done the Tongariro crossing. I was used to hiking in the Lake District so it was no bother. That lake is stunning.

  2. I remember it’s an amazing hike through all kinds of terrain, and I also remember that the lake in your photo is very smelly (rotten eggs). Your wife was brave to get so close for a good shot.

  3. Congratulations on the hike! Now it’s time to up it to 10 hours, then 12. The most I hiked continuously was 22! But I was much younger, and even then next morning I felt like I’d been hit by a truck.
