Here is my last post from Tokatoka peak, Northland.
I gave Himself and the girls my small camera to take to the top.
Himself didn’t let them stay too long on the summit as he said it was a relatively small space with sheer drops over three quarters of the surrounding sides and he felt more than a little nervous there as the sole parent and half a dozen boisterous kids, the youngest of which was only four years old.
Yes, he kept the two youngest firmly by his side.
The older girls passed the camera around and didn’t remember any more who took which photo (there were a lot more photos but none of them were particularly good at keeping the camera very still, so few turned out in focus.)
In a few other shots I got close ups of leaves and branches on the closest bushes but only fuzzy background of the views behind)
Let’s take a look at the photos that turned out well and the stunning views they captured of the surrounding countryside.
In the second photograph (that I took from the bottom) the little grey upright faint smudges you can see at the very top of the peak is them!
Looking back down at the van…
