When we got to One Tree Hill, we had our delicious morning tea and played for a while with leaves. Then we went and saw a lady named Nadia who knew a lot about different kinds of volcanoes. She showed us a variety of scoria rocks and I think she was a terrific science lady.
We all walked up One Tree Hill and found the west crater that had the side pushed away by lava and looked like the letter u. Further up, we saw grassy terraced slopes covered in freshly shorn sheep.
As we went further up, we could see the monument at the top. At the summit we could see all of Auckland.
Finally we got to go down the sides of the crater and at the bottom were scoria rocks. People wrote messages with the volcanic rocks and built castles.
