Yes, that is Hugh down the bottom, we had to unhook the trailer, and reload it.Not a good start!!!
And in the green grass on the far hill, that is where Tracey looked for us.
I did manage to get on again, but the white knuckles were there for a good part of the ride.
This is the view, and on a fine day is stunning.Produce from the land is shown in abundance. One mushroom was a meal all by itself.
The barren land of the Waiouru Army Camp, brown and dry in the summer, and frozen with ice or covered with snow in the winter.
Perfect to train the men in difficulty conditions.
There is a quad track in the centre of the grass, it winds down, around, and can be seen again at the top of then hill.
It goes a bit further and this is where Hugh stood on the rocky part.I am so glad we walked there that day.
Here is the night sky, looking to the west, from 1005 metres above sea level.
And here are the boots. just to show I did actually walk to the end of that track.
Back home, and that was our 50th Wedding Anniversary Holiday,flowers were delivered,
and there were many memories of that day those years ago.
Quotation of the day, from William Shakespeare, sonnet 116
“ Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments.
Love is not love when it alteration finds”
