Near Cape Palliser on the south end of the North Island, we camped adjacent to an area of Hoo-doos or pinnacles.
|This was all seabed, which has been eroded into towers and buttreses|
|We found partially fossilized tree trunks eroding in one gully. The centers of these ancient trees have been mineralized while the outsides are still tree.|
|Rani scrambles among the pinnacles|
|We also came across layers of burned wood that had also been compressed under dozens of meters of rock and was now incredibly dense and rock-like.|
|Rani sprouts a new pair of wings.|
