We spent a few days in the center of the North Island where there is a great deal of geothermal activity- hot springs, geysers, bubbling mud pools, etc… very different from where we’d just been. We visited a geothermal park, sailed on Lake Taupo and did a 19km hike in between volcanoes.

Hey guys! Photos are beautiful! I can hear the rush of the waters and the hues are gorgeous! Brett don't have a concern for brochures for JD. I have requested them. Love you both and wish we were there. Love you lots! Mom Maggie

Amazing photos, Amy! Your photos are like postcards! Glad to hear (and see) you guys are well and enjoying! I'm jealous! (I'm taking a break from homework right now!) Be safe out there. It hasn't hit me, yet, that you guys don't live in CA anymore... I'm getting a little broken hearted. Miss you guys. Love, Steph
