The volcanic summit of Mount Ruapehu, lower left quadrant, is covered in snow in this image of New Zealand‘s North Island. The large body of water north of the volcano is Lake Taupo. North Island’s main mountain chain appears as a dark green area running northeast from the volcano and lake towards East Cape, in the upper right quadrant of the full image.

One of the ranges in this mountain chain is the Kaweka Range, located in inland Hawke’s Bay between the city of Napier, 55 kilometres to the southeast, and Lake Taupo, 50 kilometres to the northwest. It is the source of many rivers which flow into Hawke Bay, including among them the Tutaekuri, Mohaka, and Ngaruroro Rivers.
