Mount Taranaki

Back in March of 2004 I spent some time in New Zealand. Our recent Red River Gorge hike got me thinking about some of my New Zealand adventures. Climbing Mt. Taranaki was one of them.

Dominating the regions landscape from every conceivable angle, the picturesque Mount Taranaki is the North Island’s second highest mountain, and The Egmont National Park is New Zealand’s second oldest National Park. Mount Taranaki was used as a backdrop for 2003’s epic movie “The Last Samurai”.
