The Artist's Palette in Rotorua
Isn't this spot awesome? I did not expect all this geothermal activity in New Zealand -- it was just as impressive as Yellowstone.
This area of the north island is called Rotorua. This, specifically is the Champagne Pool at the Artist's Palette at the Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland. The term "Wonderland" always makes me think of a cheap attraction on the side of the road where you can buy rubber snakes after the kids have had a great time and the parents are bored out of their skulls. But this Wonderland really was a Wonderland for all ages! I made a few videos here as well... I need to get around to editing these things together for y'all!
