I’m in a little town called Rotorua, which is known for their natural hot springs (on a much smaller scale they have been compared to Yellowstone).
Due to this, the whole area smells like sulphur, but it’s actually really neat! They have a park right in town that has natural hot springs and a path that lines the lake (Lake Rotorua), with more hot springs. New Zealand is full of volcanoes, and Lake Rotorua is actually the crater of a volcano!
Ironically, this forest is known for their California coastal redwoods! Definitely not on par with the ones in California, but the trees were still pretty huge.
