Lady Knox Geyser, New Zealand

Even though I visited here in autumn, this site was exceptionally popular and crowded, and not pleasurable at all, except for the geyser. Left to its own devices this is a mellow geyser, but drop some detergent into it, and it steadily increases its outward pressure until it reaches a considerable height and then steadily fizzes out to reach its natural state again.

This is repeated daily to accommodate the huge crowds that gather here.

I found it baffling that the natural beauties like waterfalls were all but empty of visitors, but a place like this all controlled by humans were overcrowded.
