[edit] Plans

On my way back from Palmerston North to Auckland, this beautiful cherry was on the way.

[edit] Expedition

Very non eventful, at least the hash gave me an excuse to have a break from the 6.5 hour drive from Palmy to Auckland. Was quite lucky with this location as a lot of the land in this area is Army Training Area thus restricted access. So I parked up on the side of the road, jumped the fence, scared the sheep. Followed the red dot on my phone and snapped a couple of pictures. Mt Ruapehu, the North Islands only skiing mountain has a heavy coating of snow, it being the middle of winter over here.
