To be honest bob.
Replies with pictures has nothing to do with loading time.
A picture will only loaded once no matter how many replied.

OH I didn't know that, I thought that each time it was copied that it reloaded again. so that it loaded for each copy of the photo.
Thanks for the heads up on this.

I would still agree with the eagle, though. It makes the thread easier to read if comments do not quote the picture, especially if the picture is quite recent (repeating a rather old picture when reviving it might be helpful.) Remember that a reply to a post links to the original post even when you edit the quote.

I managed to catch up with the other guy that went hiking with us last Christmas in the South Island. I have copies of the images he took (I left my camera behind...duhhh) I will post more up over the next couple of days.

1- First day on the track, about 3 hours in and 7 to go



2- The bottom of the valley leading up to the glacier, You actually turn left at the bottom of this part of the track to get to the hut, and then walk the valley the next day. This view shows the first bend in the track and the first part of the closest ice shelf overhang, tha glacier is about 4 hours further up the track. (depends just how fast you walk.. I stop and make a cup of tea on teh way and look at the scenery)



3- A Kea at the hut. They will pick anything to pieces if you leave it out, you dont leave your boots outside or they will try to pick holes in them or take the laces, they have orange coloured feathers under their wings.



4- Starting up the valley towards the glacier, a couple of the stone cairns plainly showing, hikers add rocks to them as they pass, just incase it suddenly snows and you have to find your way back in a white-out

Gotta love those Keas.

If people dont know about them, they are a large alpine parrot, that lives high up in the mountains (see Enzeds other pics). They are very intelligent and curious, and will remove parts from cars, windscreen wipers, wing mirrors, badges etc. Steal shoelaces, or whole boots, chew into backpacks looking for food or treasure etc. I believe they are the only alpine parrot in the world.

The sun has actually come out here so I took a few more pictures.

Mt Egmont as seen from New Plymouth city on the way home from work.



And from my back door tonight, the sun has just set behind the Mt and is lighting the clouds hanging about the summit from behind.



Cheers

Ian

Very nice shots Ian

She's a great mountain. The last one looks as though she has live steam coming out of it. Good background lighting there Ian. Have you got any or Ruapehu or Tongariro?

Or perhaps one of them in the distance from Taranaki (Egmont) (we kiwis also have a habit of renaming things and it confuses the heck out of visitors who have parents that visited here and then the kids come down for a visit and the name has changed... Ian you will also know about the Eganaki mountain ;) )

You can also see from the photo with your parking on the side of the road that we kiwis drive on the correct side of the road.. unlike some others... :))

Yes those Keas are extremely nosey. I had to rescue my teeshirt which I took off for a minute to rub some sunburn oil onto my shoulders, the blimmin Kea grabbed it and was going to fly away... I had to carefully hang onto it until the kea let go which was about 5 minutes later after a lot of head tossing and feet scratching. Their beak is SHARP.

Try these ones. This is Egmont from the back of my old farm, taken a few years ago, the boys are at Uni now.



Then turn 180 deg for Ruapehu and the other central volcanos.



This is pic from the top carpark looking out toward Ruapehu at sunset.
