The Tongariro Crossing

So today, I walked 19.4km up and down the Tongariro Crossing in the Tongariro National Park near Taupo! This was one of the things I definitely wanted to do in New Zealand and it was AMAZING!!!! (and well worth the aching legs at the end of it! This walk is classed as the best one-day walk in New Zealand and among the top 10 in the world!! And hope you can see why...

This walk is across the ridge between one giant mountain and one huge volcano AKA Mount Doom (for all you LOTR fans :)
I was so proud for completing this walk (classed as 'challenging') without much trouble and only a grazed knee - whoop whoop!
A seriously amazing day, looky looky looky at a few pics...

Recognise the volcano??? (It's active btw and smells of sulpher A LOT!) 

Took us 45 mins to get down this bit - super dangerous and slippy!
