It’s time for another Friday Photo. I swear the weeks are getting shorter and shorter. My life seems to be disappearing before my eyes!
This is the Champagne Pool at Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland near Rotorua in New Zealand.
The name is derived from the abundance of CO2 gas, just like a glass of bubbly. The water is pretty damn hot, you can see the steam rising. The pool is filled from a geothermal hot spring. It may look lovely, but the smell was not as nice! The geothermal activity emits a lot of sulphur so the whole area smells like less than fresh eggs. Even in the town of Rotorua itself it’s pretty stinky; it took some getting used to.
Have a good weekend! What have you got planned?
