Rā 5, Rāpare 5 o Kohitātea 2017

We had a great day out in the hills today.  We’ve been here nearly 9 years and never been up Karioi which is a 756m inactive volcano out at the coast by Raglan. It was a perfect day weather-wise with clear blue sky, a light wind and sunshine. So difficult to choose a photo from so many beautiful views

 but this one of Gus sitting on a boulder just before the summit with Nigel emerging from the bush behind him is the one!  It was an adventure! Plenty of mud, lots of ups and downs, chains, boulders and airy lookouts!
