I adore the scenery in Taranaki. Even after 9 years, I still giggle to myself when I realized that public roads in NZ are sometimes just dirt trails. We went to Lake Rotorangi yesterday and these are some of the sights. We captured a hawk that had just grabbed a rabbit.
He then flew off to a field to eat it and gave us a dirty look before we drove off.
This is the Tangahoe Valley Road Tunnel. Click here for some interesting history.
There wasn't enough water to keep the roots clinging to the hillside and the grass and weeds peeled off like wallpaper,
Sadly, this is what possums do to the native trees.
This house on the lake looks like a great place to spend the summer.
