Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo, originally uploaded by MagicTyger.

Taupo is a huge freshwater lake in the middle of the North Island. It's
surrounded by picturesque mountains, gravelly beaches, pine trees, and green

There's something about seeing so much freshwater in one place that
impresses a parched aussie like me.

There was an ironman competition here yesterday. The winning time was
almost nine hours. Can you imagine running, swimming and cycling for that
