We did a day trip to Rangitoto on the ferry. Long hike---about an hour each way and all uphill on the way out, but well worth it. This was our 2nd meet up of the InterNations group, a global expat site that has local communities all over the world. I've been heading up the Auckland community, and hope to do the same when we get to Adelaide, as they didn't give the smaller cities in Australia communities yet;) I think many members weren't up for the hike, as it only ended up to be 6 of us, but it was a good time regardless. And yes, we walked from the edge of land you see, up much further than where we took those pics.
