the road we travel

Before I share some of the wonderful scenery that we found on our trip to Taupo, I wanted to give you an idea of the roads we have to travel on. All the photos below are official 'state highways'. 

Most are narrow two lane roads with occasional passing lanes on the busier parts. We crossed many one-lane bridges and, yes, some of the roads are gravel! There are not a lot of roads in the country because of the mountainous terrain, so we don't have the luxury of taking 'alternate' routes. It certainly keeps travel interesting :)

Perfect for a rural meme! My husband would love to travel on these roads -- he still likes to drive on backroads the best (not with the RV). It looks like beautiful country.

Quite different from U.S. state highways! ;-) The scenery looks quite pleasing. I think I could enjoy these roads.

Works fine, as long as you are the only ones on the road! My Rurality: http://lore-eleven.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-positive-negative.html
