Mount Ruapehu, an active volcano

Another view of Mount Ruapehu with - Mount Ngauruhoe to the right And another view of Mount Ruapehu Mount Ngauruhoe On the shore of Lake Taupo Larry investigates the white lava rocks (pumice) - which were light enough that they floated in the lake!
Ducks and geese Larry with Lake Taupo and the Hauhungaroa Range behind him Outside Rotorua we visit one of many active thermal areas in the region, - offering sights like you'd see at Yellowstone National Park We took a walking tour of the thermal area Here you see steam rising from hot pools
There were a lot of different colors seen in the pools The colors are generated from the minerals in the soil You could feel the heat radiating from the water The pools were large shallow bodies of boiling water We wondered whether the sign was put there - before or after the hole
