Title: Pureora

This is what I'd describe as a sleeper hit....   it was a bit of a drive in here, aloing a windy dirt road to a little carpark in the middle of nowhere much.  It's one of those ones where you wonder if you're going in the right direction.

The walk was a good little workout, and I the summit is broad with great views down across Lake Taupo and to Tongariro.  It's not one that instantly grabbed me on the day, but actually, in hindsight, I remember it very clearly, and for some reason has gotten under my skin.  I'll have to revisit it.
