Didn't even read the previous yarn yet....LOVE that area around National Park and I've never seen a ski-resort in such a bizarre moon-scape setting as at Tongariro....imagine building skihuts and all infrastructure smack-bang amongst the black, spiky magma-flows.....surreal.


Looks like another good ride and the Connie enjoying stretching her legs.
Heard of a "new-ish" attraction near your place, the Gravity Canyon thing on the Rangitikei River/ Torere Rd. off Hwy1 south of Taihape.

Some new Bunjy and Giant Swing venture vying for the tourist-$$.

Thanks for all those great pics and stories, lots of good stuff to get the dreaming started

Yes, her legs were stretched a little and I had a good average when I got home...

I've been to Gravity Canyon but not done any of the attractions. Good gravel in the area too...
