Taumarunui

Hit some traffic on the way to Taumarunui.


Staying with some friends of Laura’s on a farm here, and we were lucky enough to be taken sheep wrangling in the morning.


Clinging to the back of the quad bike while being taken up the mountains of the farm land.








As it’s clear today we can see mountains off in the distance.




Shearing time for some of these unsuspecting sheep.




More mountain exploring for Laura and I. Up Sunshine Track. I have no idea why it is called this, and so far it was the worst marked path we have had the pleasure of getting lost on!


In some areas it looks like rainforest, then the view from the top looked like a vista over some welsh hills.





This wasn’t enough for us! We had to walk up a mountain to complete our day!



I was basically on all fours going up and nearly on my butt on the way down! It was worth it for the views and invigorating feeling!
Beer time!
