It was a beautiful fall afternoon to explore some local walks in the Redwoods Forest. I found myself seeming ant-like amongst such massive, towering California redwood trees. This magical park made me feel so tiny in comparison. My roommate suggested hiking the yellow track which leads to a great view overlooking the city, the Rotorua Lake and the Te Puia thermal reserve. I saved some money on visiting this geothermal attraction, and got lucky with my timing as I got to watch the huge Pohutu geyser blast hot steaming water 30 meters into the air for about 15 minutes. Thank you, Canadian roommate for the great idea.
