Notes on the Geography of New Zealand: Taupo: Photo 1

world pictures New Zealand: Taupo

Lake Taupo is a bit bigger than Tahoe but lots warmer. A smart cookie will infer that it fills the collapsed crater of a volcano that blew its top. Not very long ago, either: about 25,000 years ago. It was a world-class event, and there's heat down there still, visible in hot springs and steam vents. If it seems pleasantly calm, it's probably only because it's napping while you and I live our wink-of-an-eye lives.
