in which four friends take a Very Long Walk

One morning, four friends set off on a Very Long Walk.

They walked up rocks.

They walked in the clouds.

They walked across a crater.

They walked up a mountain.

They stood at the top.

They looked at the view.

They slid down the mountain.

They walked across snow.

They walked downhill. They walked through the grass.

They walked through a forest.

They stopped walking.

Seven-and-a-half hours. One thousand eight hundred metres up, and then down. Seventeen kilometres end to end.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Tongariro Crossing. Check.
