White Island, a privately owned volcanic outcropping off New Zealands North Island, still boils at its core. Volcanic ash and infilled craters testify to the continual activity of the volcano, which has puffed steam and gases for as long as Kiwis can remember. New Zealand boasts a diverse geology, from volcanoes to low-lying grasslands to surf-battered coasts to grinding glaciers that have scoured a mountain realm peaking with 12,316-foot (3,754-meter) Mount Cook in the Southern Alps.
