"Jumping Awkwardly In Front of Impressive Objects Until I'm 80"

"So. Although I don't take a lot of photos of people jumping, I started this collection a couple years back and am going to continue to do this until I'm 80 - so eventually there is going to be an 80-year-old woman jumping. 
Not sure why, but that never stopped me before anyways Lol!"

New Zealand, you are too cool. It is my first time here & already we have seen so many awesome things!! Today we went to the Wai-o-Tapu (Māori for "sacred waters") thermal pools. It was a little drizzly, so the colors were not as vibrant as they would have been on a sunnier day, but the billowing steam rising from the hot springs was eerily wonderful and massive, and the landscape full of colored pools, bubbling grey mud, and geysers was truly like something from another planet! Definitely worth. Awesomeness!!!

Here's another view of the Champagne Pool! Orange color indicates antimony deposits, whereas green means colloidal sulfur/ferrous salts (LOL Aka very egg-smelly).
