After reaching Mangakino, I continued south. Past the mountains and about as far inland as is possible in New Zealand!
When I came home, I was actually disappointed to find that heather is a weed... I thought it was pretty, anyway.
Not much snow, but at least the lenticular cloud looks interesting. Onward to Taihape!
"What's interesting about Taihape?", I hear you say. Well, not much. Except this.
What is it?
Figured it out yet?
Yep, it's a great big gumboot. Every small town feels the need to have a 'catch', and for some reason this is what Taihape claimed. Oooookaaaaaayyy.
