New Zealand's Pink and White Terraces (Te Otukapuarangi in Maori) may not be lost after all. Hailed as breathtaking, the enormous silica sinter deposits were on either side of Lake Rotomahana.

Tarawera in 1886, a geologist's long-overlooked diaries indicate they may be in a different location than was believed... and researchers say they may be simply covered in ashes and mud. An excavation is being planned.
