Coromandel Mountain Range

This day turned into quite an epic mission.

Since I was only in New Zealand for a short time, my hosts recommended that I disappear into the wilderness to experience the true appeal of the country. Borrowing a car, I scooted off to the nearby Coromandel Range on the Coromandel Peninsula.

Enjoyed a great day out hiking the mountains along the Kauaeranga Kauri Trail, only bumping into a few people throughout the day. The scenery was simply breathtaking – I returned at the end of the trip with both camera batteries fully out of charge.

The route seemed to get suitably remote once the asphalt was left behind.

Not sure what happened here. It was a pretty warm day and I was working fairly hard although I don’t think I was really white hot! Perhaps this was just at that stage of camera battery number one giving up…

Spent a little while at the top here, cooling off and just enjoying the view.
