286: rock climbers

I don't usually put many 'people' shots on here but here is one exception. Had a lovely little 'adventure' in downtown Wellington with my two nieces. What was one of their favourite activities? Climbing all over the three large rocks outside Te Papa. This beautiful specimen happens to have originated from Mt Egmont- it's andesite.


  1. Andesite hey. I am gonna have to look that one up.It is good that you have family connections.

  2. I grew up with andesite- in Taranaki province... Yes, I do have family and friends connections- I just usually keep them off here :-)
