Northward bound

Mt Ruapehu

Mt Ruapehu

I had to bribe Tigger away from the tanks
Or we’d have been there through the night.
Moving on, we drove the Desert Road
And saw Mt Ruapehu tipped in white.

 

shores of the Lake

shores of Lake Taupo

Onward ever onward we drove
’til we came upon the lake
Here the pumice lies scattered about
And is free for all to take

 

admiring the view

admiring the view

collecting pumice

collecting pumice

We stopped overnight in a camping ground
Alongside many others doing the same
A quiet dinner was had, and we tucked into bed
And in the dark, listened as it did rain

 

overnight stop

overnight stop
