Tongariro Alpine Crossing
Hiked 19.41 km with 891 meter climb against wind, rain and fog. We were supposed to do the trek the day before but was forced to back out because of the bad weather. We were hoping, rather naively, that the weather would clear up the next day, but it didn't. There was no backing out now as we're meant to leave NZ the following day. We didn't see much of the view but it was a great adventure nonetheless. The boys didn't get to climb Mt. Ngauruhoe because of the very poor condition but i guess there's always next time. Finished the trek and in 6 hours and got on the first pick up bus!
