Whanganui River.

On our second trip we stayed in Whanganui for a night, then drove up the Whanganui River Road to Pipiriki, across to Raetihi then up through National Park and over to Turangi for the next night, before returning home.
There is same amazing scenery up the Whanganui River...

...and some unusual things

The Fielder perform faultlessly and economically as always.

Alpacas and a pig.

Looking across the river to Jerusalem.

At some points you are high above the river.

Mary stands by the remains of an old Maori waka.

We had lunch at Angel Louise cafe at Raetihi...

....a lovely relaxing garden with huge trees.

This old radiator was leaning on the front...

....of this unusual Bedford in a yard in Ohakune.

Very tidy Thames diesel in the same yard.

Interesting stuff in the scrap metal bin.

Old self steer trailer with "Ohakune Transport"on the front of the stock crate.

Mercedes has seen better days.

Had a short stop at Smash Palace at Horopito.
International stock truck.

Chrysler Valiant VC, like my dad once owned.

A couple of old Rootes Group products. Rare Hillman Californian on the left.

Makatote railway viaduct between National Park and Turangi.

The first view of Lake Taupo, approaching Turangi.
