|Looking down Red Crater (to the north) with the
remarkable, rugged ridge over the other side of the Oturere Valley at the
bottom. This is from the first day of the Northern
Tongariro Circuit which covers the same tracks as the morning of the
Tongariro Crossing track. The bright red rock poking out at the bottom centre
is the remains of a lava tube left when lava flowed from the crater.
