Tongariro Crossing: Blue and White

So much snow! This post is inspired by Tintin in Tibet… one of the best works in the graphic novel format (and a really frustratingly difficult video game…)

We planned for a winter Tongariro Crossing to get epic photos of snowy mountains and had such a good weather for it. Unfortunately the snow was too thick and we had to turn back halfway. Apparently the crater lakes were also covered in snow. I guess there is such a thing as too much snow!
