Kia Ora everyone! This post is to inform you about The Pink And White Terraces. Lately in extension, we have been learning about Mt Tarawera. Which is famous for the Pink and White Terraces. The terraces, are very beautiful. Well, in this case, WAS very beautiful. Let me explain, the terraces were created by one of the eruptions. But after the SECOND eruption, The Pink and White Terraces, were covered by mud and ash. This is a very sad thing. They are very lovely. During one of the extension sessions, we shared that if they were still here today, we would've gone on a trip to see them. I would like to thank Hamish Campbell for inspiring Point England School.I have also done some research of my own, about Mt Tarawera, and The Pink and White Terraces. My writing below is about what happened DURING the eruption. This is what I found out:
-When steam started to pour out of the vents, lightning appeared.
-It is said that if you go in to the terraces' hot springs, with a sore back, you will come out cured, and relaxed.
- The Maori people charged 10 pounds for someone to be able to come to Mt Tarawera.
-NO ONE was allowed on the Pink and White terraces without a guide.
