In Rotorua, thermal areas like this one are a dime a dozen. Because of all these thermal areas, Rotorua has a distinct sulfuric odor (which I actually quite liked).
Rotorua's thermal areas are the primary tourist attraction. In the picture above, you can see the steam that persisted from various thermal hotspots. Many Rotorua hotels have hot tubs that pipe in the hot water from natural sources underground. If you like the strong odor (like I do) one of these hot tubs can be quite relaxing.
I'm sure the ducks appreciated the warm thermal water on a dreary December day in Rotorua.
Just outside of Rotorua lies this highly active area of geysers, boiling mud, and hot steam.
These geysers were pumping at full steam just outside of Rotorua on a morning in early December.
Through centuries of thermal activity, these limestone deposits have grown due to the high volumes of mineral-rich water.

Along with my Buter peers, I enjoyed this small waterfall while hiking near the Shakespear Lodge. I know it's not much, but it was the highlight of our short trek that day.
I love this shot of a snowy mountain peak near the Franz-Josef Glacier. The silhouette of a tree fern, New Zealand's national symbol, dominates the foreground.
