New Zealand: Okere Falls

with 25 comments

Okere Falls 7551

On February 25th, shortly after heading north from the geothermal region around Rotorua, I stopped briefly at Okere Falls. While I was there a young German asked me—oh, the presumed wisdom of white hair—if it was safe to jump into the water at the base of the falls. I told him I didn’t know but he apparently decided it was safe because not long afterwards I saw him, dripping wet, coming back up the path from below the falls. The only falls-related urge that the older American yielded to was the non-wetting one of taking pictures, as you see here.
