Pictures from Mt. Ruapehu

During the days the rain has not poured down all over everybody, Mt. Ruapehu has presented a few very pretty sights.  I present eight of them here.

The valley looking away from Mangawhero Falls.  In the snow!

The falls themselves.

From very close by the Falls.

A view from high on the mountain.  The mountain in the distance is Mr. Taranaki, on the West Coast.

Sunset over the western North Island.

Base camp is at 1600m.  The rest of the island is not 1600m.  Results are thus.

Both this and the next photo are neat, and I can’t decide between them.  I like the snow in the foreground of this photo, and the sun and sky in the next.
