On the return trip home

After Holidaying in the Coromandel and Ruakaka we stop in on our way back into Orakei Korako thermal valley just north of Taupo, also known as “The Hidden Valley”.

This is a place I have visited before with my parents as a child of about eight or nine years old. I have always wanted to return there and photograph it. Most of the geothermal wonderland I recalled as I walked the tracks to the geysers, mud pools and a cave, but I didn’t realise back then how impressive the rawness of the bushland was.
