New Zealand: Two steam-capped geothermal sites

with 28 comments

Today marks the beginning of the fifth and last set of photographs from the great February visit to New Zealand.

The first picture is from Te Puia on February 23rd. I expected to see areas of yellow attributable to sulfur, but the pale reddish rocks farther out came as a surprise.

And speaking of colors, how about the green and orange that I found together along one margin of the Champagne Pool at Wai-O-Tapu on February 24th?
