We're a mile to the west and looking over the Craters of the Moon. Odd name, but we're not in charge. Funny thing, the ground here was formerly much less active. Until the 1950s, the busy spot was the Wairakei Geyser Valley, but it simmered down when the Wairakei Power Station opened. When that happened, this patch of ground, which is part of the same Wairakei geothermal field, came alive.
