The Journey Through Mordor

You all know that famous saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, for this post I am going to let the pictures tell the story because no matter how much I can say about how amazing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing was, words just won’t do it justice. This hike is regarded as one of the best day hikes in New Zealand, and it certainly lived up to its reputation for us. Enjoy!

From the desert, around volcanos, over a summit, into a valley with beautiful lakes, to ending in the forest with babbling brooks, this hike definitely has it all. I just recommend a sturdy pair of boots and lots of sunblock!

Not all who wander are lost..
