Today we made our way onto Lake Taupo. It was nice to be on the lake, but one of the draws of this particular cruise was to see some Maori rock carvings. Now, my limited research made it seem like these were thousands of years old. Instead they were about 80 years old, and was a bunch of guys carving these rocks for their grandmother. It took them 3 years to finish, and it is cool, but not quite as historical as I imagined.
And then we got in to car and made our way to National Park Village to prepare for a long hike tomorrow.
