Survival of the fittest

[:en]On day five we made a day walk up and down a vulcano. The Tangariro Alpine Crossing. After crashing at a totally abandoned parking spot in the middle of nowhere and by about zero degrees we got lucky with the weather (otherwise the walk would have been canceled since they don’t let anyone up there in case of bad weather conditions). But since the rain stopped and the wind “only” blow with 40 km per hour we were allowed to walk 19,4 km up and down the mountain, which we did in seven and a half hour. At the top it was pretty foggy but once we got through that (after approx. 3 hours ;)) the view was amazing.

[:de]Am fünften Tag sind wir in 7 Stunden 30 über einen Vulkan und haben dabei 800 Höhenmeter überwunden (höchster Punkt war wohl 1800 Meter). Nachdem wir am Vortag noch Pech mit dem Wetter hatte, wo somit nicht ganz klar war, ob die Tour überhaupt stattfinden kann, klarte es rechtzeitig für unsere Tour auf, so dass “lediglich” noch ein frischer Wind von 40 km pro Stunde wehte ;). Auf dem Gipfel war es dann leider auch noch recht neblig, aber als wir uns nach etwa drei Stunden endlich durchgekämpft hatten, war der Blick atemberaubend.
