Green Arsenic Lake
This is in Waiotapu, Rotorua, New Zealand
. This lake really is that green! There are walking trails here to look at all the thermal activity. I was amazed to see the color of the lake when I turned. It is even brighter than this photograph! I learned that it contains a large amount of arsenic and all the minerals in the lake will dry up a human body very quickly. Some Maori women chose to end their lives by swimming into the lake.
