LamandEgg on Walkabout! travel blog

We headed up to Egmont National Park this morning to get a view of Mt.Taranaki from a distance. It was quite the sight --a stand alone volcano with the top blown off, surrounded by paddocks. It's very easy to see why it was used in the filming of 'The Last Samurai', because it really does look like Mt.Fuji!!

We then made our way over to Tongariro, where we will camp tonight and hike the Tongariro Crossing (8hr hike) in the morning. Hope the weather is good!!!
