I wish we would have had more than an overight here. The sunrise was spectacular, especially with the snow covered mountains to the south. Be sure to stop at the lookout on the right side of the road heading north out of town!

Look across Taupo from the lakefront to the mountains. Another of Taupo's amazing picture postcard natural beauties to admire, photograph and enjoy on your own or with others.
