Taupo, North Island, New Zealand: By now we’ve learned New Zealand is known for its geologic diversity.  Craters of the moon is an area just outside Lake Taupo where there’s a ton of geothermal activity.  Walking through it was interesting because some of the mud pools, steam vents and eruption craters that we saw on this day didn’t exist a week ago and may move to another part of the park in another week’s time.  The shifting landscape was fascinating & haunting.
