A different sort of Dome.

Last weekend I was at the Dome Shelter on Mount Ruapehu.

This week I was summiting the Dome Valley north of Warkworth. At only 330m above sea level is a quite a bit lower then Ruapehu. And a lot easier ie 1 hour to the summit 3 hours return.

What does Rangitoto look like from 70km north of Auckland? The same that is does from everywhere else. Stands out like anything.

Two trucks working their way through the Dome Valley being able to look down on the road was odd. It looked straight and easy. When in reality it is windy and hilly. Shows you how much perspective means to everything.
