Chateau Tongariro...with a snow cat


I love this location and for years I have wanted to visit it, the last time we were in this area was over 10 years ago but I never got a chance to stop until now.  Chateau Tongariro is in the heart of the National Park, was originally built in the 1920s and is still in use today. On the day we were there someone had thoughtfully made what we thought looked like a snow cat out the front, our attempt was some sort of small trans-gender snow person.

Good to know that no matter the age we still love to build snowmen (and cats, of course).

What a beautiful place. It's always surprising for me to see snow at this time of year when it's so hot where I live. It's hard to believe that it's actually cold somewhere else.

That is one charming place. Nice to see you have been able to return.

One of my sadnesses is that I never did the Tongariro crossing and I never saw the chateau. So thanks for that.

I have passed by the Chateau a number of times on the way to the ski fields. Well done on the mini snow ... um ... person.

The building itself is remarkable, but this Canadian loves the second photo, with the beautiful mountain view. I never tire of beautiful mountains.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
