Mate...to me it could be 1500m BELOW sea-level.
It's a cracker of a road, a breathtaking stunner of a landscape and a ride I won't forget in a hurry. In my stats, this thing rates sky-high....LOVED IT!!

Hard to find any "different" pics to those above from day 12...
These are all on the climb out of the Otematata


It was hard to resist the urge to take a photo on every bend.. the higher the road climbed, the more spectacular the views...
