Today Jessica and I climbed up Mount Maunganui which rises above the town of the same name. We managed to make it to the top in an impressive 37 minutes.
Mount Maunganui is a 232 metres tall lava dome which was formed by the upwelling of rhyolite lava about two to three million years ago. The top of Mount Maunganui provides 360° views which span the entire length of the Bay of Plenty.
On the walking track at Mount Maunganui with Omanu Beach in the distance. Not sure whether my daughter is being rude or practicing her Māori Haka.
