Mt Taranaki


Meg, 12

Climbing Mt Taranaki was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Taking each step higher and higher towards the summit puts a huge grin on my face. Seeing the sun finally break over the horizon puts astonishment to my face.
As the last few steps of the scree rest behind me I can finally see the top of the crater.
My body is encouraging me to move faster and faster towards the top, it’s there, right in front of me. I take one last step and reach the top. I gaze out onto the open and I know I have succeeded with my goal, my plan, and my adventure.
