New Zealand - December 9th, 2010

The large, dark blue lake in the center of New Zealand’s North Island is Lake Taupo. It is actually the water-filled caldera of a large rhyolitic volcano.

South of the Lake Taupo is Mount Ruapehu, an active stratovolcano at the southern end of the Taupo Volcanic Zone. Here, its peak, the highest point on the North Island, appears capped with snow.
