Mount Wellington

I live near Mt. Wellington. In fact, I live so close to Mt. Wellington that I often go for walks up the mountain for a bit of exercise and some time to think.

Now, it’s called a mountain not because it’s particularly big, but because it is, technically, a volcano. I took a number of photos up there but this is my favourite (click for more detail):

Where else in the world can you walk up a mountain and look at the skyscrapers of the biggest city in the country with a bunch of cows grazing nearby? I love Auckland.
