volcano city

July 7, 2010

Auckland lies on a volcanic field of roughly 48 volcanoes. Most of them inactive, and some are dormant.They define the hilly topography which actually means up and down the volcano.

Traditionally the Maori carved terraces and fortifications into them.  Later some of the volcanoes were eaten up/flattened by the commercial dragons to provide easy building lands.
