17th Februarie, 2013 was a good day to revisit the volcanic spirit of Mount Ruapehu.
A cute warning guarded all roads to the mountain: “High level of voulcanic danger!”. Exactly two years ago, 16th February, the volcano did not want to show more.
The picture seems idyllic. I can only remember about the sand flies, remarkable infernal creatures.
One of the endless beaches from Piha. Two years ago…
Only a few technical details:
Total height: 52m
Trunk girth: 14m
Age: >2000 years old
and one the most impressive: Trunk volume: 244.5m3
