The Road from Dargaville - Mangaraho Rock



New Zealand is full of old volcanoes and some still active ones. This is Mangaraho Rock an old volcanic plug several miles from the Tokatoka Volcanic plug. Finally got a photo of it from my Mum's moving car would you believe. Not bad considering it was taken at 60 miles an hour.

  9. Wont be a problem, I'm sure that those who work in customs have no clue what an arrow head is, they will just think you are a weird Kiwi lady who carries rocks around with her!
