Taranaki:New ZealandĀ 

Taranaki is located on the west coast of the north island. It is known for the volcano: Mt. Taranaki

There are beautiful views of Mt. Taranaki all throughout the area. 

The weather was terrible this week and I only got out to hike one day.

Pictured above is the water that now streams over where the lava flowed when the volcano erupted years ago.
