|Turangi to Taumeranui: national park|
The advice about ice was good advice. Right along the route bright red signs warned against slippery conditions in cold weather.
Further along the route passes through country that looks like a sea of camels ... lots of humpy hills. I couldn't help but think how wonderful it would be if some of the more marginal farm land was allowed to revert to bush. It seemed so forlorn. Later I saw a painting by Dick Frizzel that illustrated my thoughts as I drove to New Plymouth.
