Been slacking on the blogging…but to make up for it, here are some pictures from our trip to the north island, through Rotarua, to Taupo and then Kinloch for an early season race.  I’m currently in the land of the Lord of the Rings….more on that to come in the next post (I promise, it will be sooner, I’m currently trapped on a mountain….). 
Kinloch swim exit

The falls outside of Taupo, the metamorphic rocks act as a funnel for the water draining out of Lake Taupo


One smelly walk around the sulpher springs outside of Rotarua

A quick stopon our way to the race in Kinloch at a geyser is enough to make me happy!
