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 Modern office building in Rotorua Rotorua Visitors Center All of the Rotorua hotels had hot tubs. - Here Larry enjoys a soak. Sunday, December 22 - Our last day in New Zealand. - We drive to Auckland.
