Mount Taranaki

Mount Taranaki is what we hoped to see, once again, the weather was

bad, it was raining heavily! We couldn't see a thing!

Mt. Taranaki is a huge conical shaped volcano, which dominates the

landscape, rising to 2518 metres out of the surrounding plain.

Mount Taranaki is surrounded by lush temperate rainforest and the area

is protected with National Park status

New Plymouth

We thought that New Plymouth was quite nice of what we could see, we

will have to return for a better look in finer weather!

    I wouldn´t mind seeing those fossilized shells. When Anita (from Australia) came for a visit here to Iceland, she told me about the fozzilized shells.

    now i may be wrong but when i think of New Zealand, it reminds me of Canada in a way - green and mountainous, but definitely not as cold :-) nice tips on this page Dee. it seems you enjoyed every bit of this country.

    GREAT little page De...What amazing looking scenery..we can only imagine what it would have been like to survive here before modern times...reminds me of the ruggedness you'd see in parts of Canada..
