Cardrona Creek on Flickr.
On the south island of New Zealand, there is an un-assuming road between Arrowtown and Cardrona. Just your standard two-lane stretch of blacktop. Should you ever be in this region of the world, I highly recommend that you traverse this road. Doesn’t matter how, it’s only about 17 miles, but the view and the scenery make it one hell of a journey. I suggest you rest and take lunch down beside the Cardrona Creek amongst the most beautiful Lupine flowers, should they be blooming.
You First on Flickr.
Hey Tumblr, it’s been a while. The weather on this day was interesting. It continually felt like it was going to rain but it never did. The water looked quite inviting but in three days I never actually saw anyone swimming in it.
Ruatapu Cave on Flickr.
One of only two caves in the world located within a geothermal field, at the bottom of which is a hot pool of acid water. A great place to clean your jewellery should the need arise.
Inferno Crater Lake on Flickr.
As the water rises in this lake, the level will fall in Frying Pan Lake, a mysterious hydrogeological dance that takes 38 days to complete before it begins anew. No other hydrothermal system in the world experiences similar behavior.
