Karioi mountain New Zealand .

Discussion in 'Miscellany' started by Desmond, Sep 6, 2008.

  1. Today I visited a new town and when I looked back at Karioi in the distance [ close to my home ] and saw how good the weather was for a change I decided it was time to climb it ...

    3pm I was at the start of the climb to the lookout rated at 2 hours .
    The beginning of the track is close to the sea right next to "Te Toto gorge" .

    In some places chains have been added to help over rough terrain .

  3. 55 minutes to the top , 45 minutes back down and some more pics right across the road at the bottom which is actually the top of the Te Toto gorge ....

    By the looks of that tree, there seem to be some frequent high winds in the area! :) 
     
  6. great series
    i like #s 2,3, 9, 10, and the sunset
    well done
     
  7. There are quite a few photo opportunities with bent over trees in the area .
    One day I may have to devote an hour or two to ''windswept trees'' .
     
  8. Beautiful series of images. :smile:
     
  9. Thanks , I still think I could do something better with all those windswept trees , maybe some wireless flash after sunset :confused: 
     
  10. Is that your one sunny day up there lately Desmond??? LOL
    Did Waikato win this week??
     
  11. After all the rain we had a few weeks ago it is a relief to see spring showing itself . The interesting thing is that even though there have been many slips from all the rain the farmers are complaining , [:eek: :confused: :rolleyes: ] believe it or not , about the fact that the ground is still very dry because the rain isn't as consisitent as it used to be - another dry summer is predicted
    . [ wrt waikato winning I assume you are talking about rugby - a sport I have never watched :smile: not even back in SA :eek: ]
