The inaugural walk around Mordor started out small, (there were only four of us) but we enjoyed wonderfully atmospheric conditions of fog and gloom with the occasional clear moment when we could admire the gigantic horrible heaps of ash and slag that make up Mts. Ngaruhoe and Ruapehu. Stay tuned for the photos!
Next plans: a hobbithead expedition to the top of Ruapehu next month; next year a trip across the flank of Ruapehu going as close to the filming locations as possible, not that anyone will be there. Keep February 2001 clear if you are a bit of a traveller and like hiking.
Oh, and I have some fresh newsbits in Spy Reports
