Located in the center of New Zealand’s North Island is a mountain that has been famous with climbers and trekkers for years, Mount Ngauruhoe. It become infamous after the release of the Lord of the Rings trilogy that used the mountain as Mordor’s Mt. Doom. It is an impressive active volcano that has erupted 45 times in the 20th century, most recently in 1974. It makes for a very photogenic subject and I hope you enjoy.
