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 Overlook of the many pools below Walking through the steam You can see where sulfurous minerals have - condensed on the hillside  behind Bill We had dinner at the Fat Dog restaurant in Rotorua
