Such a diverse climate. When I think of NZ, I think green rolling hills and steep mountain crags. Yes, right out of 'Lord of the Rings'. This picture could be in my states lower half or part of the Mojave preserve in the SW United States. Unless titled, I would never have thought it was where it is :dizzy:1607097352756.png

Per post: Megabug

I collect these kind of photos as we travel the world. This was at the Blue Duck Lodge, Whanganui, New Zealand. Wild kids !!

Ran across this on the outside of our city water supply. Not sure what it means. :p

EDIT: What's even more funny is that this is the view when you turnaround - View attachment 179526

Ah,......Pendelton. For years I heard about Cabbage Patch hill (grade). On a work trip heading home, 1 year, my partner and I were rolling East and came thru there. Realized where we where, and sure enough, saw what is must be a daily like occurrence, a semi at the bottom, pulled over, rear tires/brakes smoking badly and maybe on fire. That hill is bad ......juju. I have watched some You-Tube videos, and you can see the truckers who respect that grade, and those that end up in trouble. That EDIT: 10 7miles, has to be seriously respected.

That trucker, he was lucky he had any brakes left, and could have either ended up on the run-away ramp, or in a pile at the bottom.

Watched a Ford Mustang pretty much burn to the ground on that hill. When I got the driver to pull over the brakes were on fire. She had no clue what downshift meant. Imagine I scared her to death frantically waving, screaming at her to pull over. She shook her head no at me 5 or 6 times before she realized her car was burning to the ground. I can only imagine the thoughts going through her mind when I started trying to get her to stop.
