Hot Creek Springs

After running into impenetrable snow on the roads to Obsidian Dome and
Lookout Mountain, we managed to make it to Hot Creek. Along the gorge
for a short stretch hot springs erupt under and next to the creek. The
geothermal activity here and in the vicinity are evidence of a still
active area. Recent earthquakes are further evidence as well.

(I have great memories of floating down the creek here, enjoying the
hot springs, with Eric Essene in 2003 on the California field trip. No
swimmg today though, it's all blocked off.)
