Rapids on the Waikato River, right before they become Huka Falls

Huka Falls

Aratiatia Rapids, created by lifting the Aratiatia Dam (which happens a few times a day)

The next two pairs of photos show the water while the dam is open, and then when the dam has been closed for a few minutes.

Awesome birds by Lake Taupo, posing just for us.
