Tuesday’s A-Z challenge: “M” = Mud pools

“M”=MUD POOLS

This was an experience to remember!

Seeing hot MUD bubbling up in the water hole.

There are troughs with hot healing water where you can sit and relax your tired feet!

The following are mud pools that are very “dry” at the moment.

They still have lots of bubble deep down the holes.

They are usually filled up to the brim  with bubbling mud.

Rotorua – the place of fascinating Māori culture, hot springs and boiling mud pools. No visit to New Zealand would be complete without stopping here.

Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity and sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire.
