Tongariro Crossing

I've done this walk/run before a couple of times with Him Outdoors, but this time it was with the Weevil and family, and a very sore calf muscle. 

As I didn't want to overstretch things, I only walked as far as the South Crater with them, then let them go on ahead while I waited out of the wind for them to return. It was very peaceful sitting behind a boulder in a crater and listening to the sounds of nature.

I took the following photo for Him Outdoors, as this was was the route we first attempted. Guess what the weather was like...
