Airborne volcanic ash can be devastating to airplane engines and in recent years commercial aviation firms have learned to give erupting mountains a wide berth. So authorities did not hesitate to close the Auckland, New Zealand, airport for two nights when ash clouds erupted from the Mt. Ruapehu volcano, a 9,000-foot peak on the country's North Island. There have been several sizable eruptions at Ruapehu since last September. There has been no loss of life, however.

New Zealand's Mt. Ruapehu volcano kicked back into life Wednesday with an atom-bomb-like mushroom cloud of ash. Ruapehu's latest outburst could be seen for many miles, often obscuring the sun and adding an overcast quality to what had been a sunny day. Scientists said the 9,190-foot volcano, about 140 miles north of Wellington on New Zealand's North Island, had been relatively quiet for most of Tuesday before spurting back to life overnight.

Read these words from 29-year-old Allen Deever: --My greatest fear is that someone will accuse me of being normal. --I want to work two days a week and take five off. --(Everything) I do is a declaration of freedom. --I eat weeds from my side yard because they're healthy. So it doesn't seem unusual that he plans to jockey a camel in the 2,000-mile Great Australian Camel Race across the Great Dividing Range to the Gold Coast as part of Australia's bicentennial celebration.

The wind sang in my hair. The snow crunched softly underfoot. The winter sun shone congenially and warmed my tanned arms. To my left filed the almost empty lifts of the National Downhill run. To my right rose the smoking, nearly perfectly symmetrical cone of snow-covered and active Ngaurahoe. Far, far off to the west rose the aspiring summit of Mt. Taranaki, an iceberg of mist in a sea of white clouds.
