Middle Earth's Rolling Hills of Piopio


After visiting the limestone cliffs, we decided to explore the road ahead and experience what most visitors do not see.  The road turned into a dirt and gravel road that had figure eight curves, creeks, and rain to add to the excitement.  Several times I thought I should turn around and return the way we came but the wannabe mountain women in me wanted to see where the road would end.  Our GPS was not working, mountains and remote country usually will not have towers.  No Starbuck's coffee to sip on to steady my nerves as the car went up steep hills. Pasture land was a welcome relief and these pictures were taken from a farm house.  When the car approach the breath taking scenery of the rolling hills, I parked the car and trespass on a farm. I walked to the edge of the property and took several of these pictures. I sincerely hope they did not mind.  They probably do not see too many visitors on the road.  It was a 100% Pure New Zealand adventure!
