We saw the blue penguins at 9:00pm! Made the trip worth it!!! What a gorgeous little island
Gorgeous sunset at Mangetepop Hut first night. Beautiful second day up to red crater and through the emerald lakes. Windy night at Outerer Hut, sustained winds about 80kph at hut which sounded like a freight train. 160 kph at Red Crater Summit! Miserable head wind of about 30mph and blowing rain back to Whakapapa. Great trip, got ‘lucky’ with the weather.
