This is Mount Ngauruhoe (7,516'), one of 2 active volcanoes on the Central North Island plateau of Aotearoa. This mountain featured as Mount Doom in the 'Lord of the Rings' series films. It's a beautiful mountain, especially on a fine day, but the plume of steam that issues from its crater on most days is an indication of the latent power below ground. One of the twin Tama Lakes provides a mirror shape below the mountain.

From Wikipedia: "Ngauruhoe has erupted more than 70 times since 1839. It is no longer showing signs of any significant unrest and the Volcanic Alert Level has been reduced to zero (typical background activity).

A significant increase in earthquake activity in May 2006 prompted the alert level to be raised to one (signs of volcano unrest). Over the next two years GeoNet recorded an average of 5 to 30 earthquakes a day close to Ngauruhoe, though the maximum daily number was as high as 80."

Hey Bruce, National Park and the Desert Road are very dear to me. I hanker to live closer - except in winter, when it's cold enough up here! I've never been to the summit of Ngauruhoe, though I've been up Ruapehu several times and drank birthday wine on the top of Tongariro - yay! So glad you are enjoying these NZ ones.
