New Zealand: Lake Rotoiti

with 29 comments

Lake Rotoiti 5295

Here’s Lake Rotoiti outside the village of St. Arnaud on New Zealand’s South Island as it appeared late in the afternoon on February 17th. The name Lake Rotoiti is partly redundant because roto already means ‘lake’ in Māori. The iti means ‘small’ or ‘narrow,’ an implicit comparison to the larger Lake Rotoroa that we also visited a little to the west of this lake.
