Rā 304 Rātapu 30 o Whiringa-ā-nuku

A day out getting up high on the mighty maunga – Te Aroha.  I didn’t really intend going all the way to the top as I wasn’t sure if my hip would cope.  But by the time I got more than half way, it just didn’t seem appropriate to turn back without reaching the summit.  The views across the Waikato, north to Coromandel and along the Kaimais were stunning.
