Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe from the road heading for Pipiriki, past Raetihi. On the way to the Wanganui River road. It’s all tar sealed now you know?
Peering through the rail underpass at Mt Ruapehu. Not much of a risk of being run over by a train in New Zealand.

Standing in the middle of SH1.
Just taking pictures of Mt Ngauruhoe, while Standing in the middle of SH1. You can do that in New Zealand. Take pictures in the middle of the road. Not because it’s allowed, but because you can.
Clouds, not smoke above the active volcano.
Clouds, not smoke above Mt Ruapehu. It’s a 10,000 ft, give or take, live Volcano.
Because Mt Ruapehu is so very big, you can see it from very far away. Like this from over 100 miles, or 160 kilometres distant.
