A few more pics of our road trip

Moki Tunnel, aka Hobbit Hole

I guess it's the season for escapee sheep.


Whanganui River 

Tongariro National Park

Lambs in the paddock


A small town declared itself a Republic after being moved from one district to another. 
The town of 40 has a Republic Day every two years and attracts thousands of folk.

The hotel in the background below is 'the' representative building for the town. There's not much else to the town.

I'd like to know what this sign is all about, too.

Excellent photos of your beautiful countryside. I am not surprised to see sheep as they must be almost everywhere. Impressive tunnel.

My goodness that is beautiful country ... Awe inspiring....definitely glad it is a National Park. The escaped sheep doesn't look as happy as the ones in the paddock (let that be a lesson , LOL)....well, the sign does seem like good advice, I must admit!
