Rangitoto from the ferry. We were getting close to the island in this image. A ferry ride is the only way to get there! There is no drining water. You have to bring your own. And when you walk on the trail, it sounds as though you are walking on glass. The volcanic pebles are hollow...both eerie and cool!
Pohutukawa: A native bush/tree of N.Z. This is one of my favorite trees in N.Z. During the summer, Rangitoto island is a hue of red from a distance. All those Pohutukawa trees!!!
View of Auckland City from the summit. If you look on the left...that is downtown Auckland. Do you see the spikey object in the photo? That is the sky tower. Google and check it out ;)
