Contrasting colours from hot to cool – Wednesday 1st February 2012

After the heat, the sulphur, the dryness of the volcano this morning we were full of adrenalin and needed a walk.
A simple hour and half takes you round the Blue Lake and what a contrast to this morning (see last post) from acrid yellow sulphur to clear blue water surrounded by lush green. Actually there was a little too much water due to recent rain and the path was flooded so we had to walk a quarter of the route on the road which skirted the perimeter of the lake.

There is also Green Lake and Lake Tarawera, which is huge, along this particular road. There must be 10 large lakes besides Lake Rotorua altogether. Lake Tarawera has a good cafe overlooking the landing stage, where we enjoyed the view.

This peaceful scene seemed a perfect end to our day.
