Tell us the story behind your photo:
This photo was taken on the final day of my Gold award practice journey. Our journey was the Tongariro Northern Circuit but we completed it backward by first tramping to Waihohonu hut and finishing on the 3rd day by walking from Oturere hut to Whakapapa village. Some of this was off-track and meant that the terrain was difficult in some places, like the rocky side of a hill in the picture that we had to face to make it around the lake. It was certainly a challenge but it was a lot of fun.
