Orakei Basin crater

The fourth (fifth? hundredth? augh I’m already overwhelmed) of my 53 volcanoes.

This one’s just a wet hole in the ground, so I had to hike down a long staircase instead of up a grassy trail.

As always, the field guide was full of interesting facts about eruption, the lava flows and so on. But the most interesting fact about this particular volcano is that it is home to the Auckland Water Ski Club… This picture was literally taken from Lee’s office.
