Photographer's Note

Hi all. We recently did an overnight trip to Lake Taupo and it rained solidly for the entire time we were away, except for the half hour we detoured up Mount Ruapehu.
Even then we had showers and strong wind, the chill factor must have below zero!
This is typical scenery on the main highway side of the mountain and is where the road gets its name; Desert Road. Vegetation is sparse and stunted due to the alpine environment. In the BG are the Kiamanawa Ranges.
Enjoy, Paul.
