Well another Friday is upon us and that’s good news for two reasons, naturally one is that it must be time for View From The Cab.

As they do every week, the Tachoblog Tribe have been sending in their Views for which Tachoblog is always grateful. Last week’s VFTC was, perhaps, the best ever, can we beat that this week…

Let’s starts in New Zealand, so that must mean Vic H. He’s been Back down south this week. Approaching Lake Taupo in the centre of the North Island these huge clouds of steam are from the Wairakei thermal area, where there is a Geothermal Power Station…

There is a new viaduct being built across this thermal field, but at the moment the road turns right and soon passes along the edge of Lake Taupo, which is an old volcanic crater now filled with water and trout. This volcanic eruption was reputedly the largest natural explosion ever…

…Then he heads North on Highway 36 in Needville.  Amishtrucker says that they’ve ‘been getting rain here in Texas. Perhaps the drought is over’.

Jumping around the world again, we reach Australia where TwoCrowsDown is clearly very pleased with his cleaning efforts…

…This ‘proper’ View was taken North of Wubin, Western Australia when he’d ‘stopped to do a bit of geocaching this morning. All the wildflowers are in bloom’.

Back to America again (we get around don’t we!) and we find Namanav urging us to ‘check out that Nashville sky!’
