Where I stayed
Top 10 holdiay park (Junction 46/47)
Today we left Taupo and hugged the edge of the lake on highway 1, enjoying the continuous panoramic views of the lake and mountains beyond, not enjoying the multiple trucks, camper vans and boats passing on a road just slightly to narrow to relax but as they say ''if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain"
Later it did rain but there were no bows, only a big Taponga Saddle (hill/mountain) which the book had described as probably worth it for the views, we got to the view point and thought this is definitely worth it even in the rain but unknown to us we were only a third of the way up and that was it for views, it was still probably worth it though.
After the seemingly never ending Taponga Saddle surprised us by finally ending, we zoomed down into forests which although logically I knew had no yeti's in, being to young and small, looked like yeti country to me, steaming away with the drying rain.
Eventually we found the motor camp for our first night of camping!
