Wow, what a fantastic weekend to hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing! Brilliant clear blue sky days with a good breeze to keep you cool. Lots of manuhiri  (visitors) out there who will go back home very happy with their experience. Great to see everyone well equipped with the necessary gear to ensure they have a great day. Looking forward to more of these days this summer!
