Mount Ngauruhoe

There's no question why Peter Jackson chose Mount Ngauruhoe to be "Mount Doom" in the Lord of the Rings. That perfect cone of a volcano whispers pure evil. Walking from the road quickly to capture fading sun was like being on some kind of joke - the ground is practically bouncy with all the spongy bushes.
