December 29th, 2008sentinel rock and the ninnies

sentinel rock and the ninnies

Behind the ninnies you can see the spectacular views of Sentinel Rock on top of the Kaimai ranges, and surrounding countryside (near Katikati).

Between the ninnies and the background you can see a tropical storm.

I’ve wanted to go up there for years, and this morning was the appointed time. It seems I’ll have to go back another time to see the rock.

We had great fun. The rain added to the whole experience! There would have been no mud on the steep climb without it.

We did the 4-5 hour walk (12km) in 3 hours, and were back for lunch.
