On tuesday it rained all day, it was in the low to mid 60's and wasn't cold. Knowing my time was limited I headed out to Wai-O-Tapu (Sacred Waters) to see the geothermal pools anyways. What a feast for the eyes. With so much volcanic activity the ground is literally belching steam and boiling mud.
The next stop was to see the Lady Knox geyser blow with the help of a little soap powder sprinkled down the hole.
At Wai-O-Tapu the earth and water are colored from mineral deposits and is has so many different colors.
The color was amazing, such vivid turqouise blue and orange ocher, it made my heart go pitter pat.
This pool of water is really florescent green, actually day-glo, it is hard to believe it is naturally this color, but it is!
