Mountain report

The family did ski-bunny stuff on Ruapehu while I walked up and down Mt. Tongariro, which is nearby but not so high.

Here are some icicles on Tongariro.

They're LENSES, people. They could easily have focussed the sunlight and set fire to the scoria and burnt down the entire mountain. It was lucky I was passing.

That was way too close, next time deal with the lenses before they occur.

Finally! A use for glasses-smashing schoolyard bullies.

Kinda looks like you yanked a jagged piece out of the sky.

Wow, I think I killed a brain cell just writing that. Maybe buying some colloidal silver would be a good idea...

Perhaps something is growing out of it.
