Mar 11 – To Taupo

View Larger Map

Today we drove up the center of the north island to the volcanic region of Lake Taupo.

We saw this interesting cookie store on the way.


Some of the large volcanic mountains we passed. There are supposed to be some interesting hikes up at the top but we did not have time.

Next it was on to the Craters of the Moon, with its steaming hot water pools, some small geysers and mud pots.11-120-Craters of the Moon11-140-Very Hot 11-150-Mud bath
