Wingrove Road, Pukengahu

These are a few more shots of the countryside.





I didn't know that the area of Pukengahu existed until I looked for the name of the road we took the other day. It seems that most of  Taranaki (and I assume the rest of the country, too) has Maori name for the spaces between towns.

For example, I discovered that we give directions to the house from one town and get mail delivery from another, yet we live in a Maori named region for voting purposes. Who knew...

The mountain shapes are other-worldly. I must get to your country sometime in this life.

You are still learning things about your new home. Thanks for sharing. Most interesting. (And that roadside red tree is lucious.)
