Then we walked across the bridge. The drop is at the end of the rapids there.
Just before we reached Rotorua we stopped in to see the bubbling mud just outside one of the Thermal resorts. And then we really said "WOW".
We really did this in the right order. I think once you have been to this area Craters of the Moon and the South of Lake Taupo are really silly in comparison. But for us each was really special and we kept being amazed at how much bigger each was. It really stank though - so we did not stay long.
