Detailed Description

The temperature in Hot Creek can change in seconds. These photos were taken 5 seconds before and then during a violent geysering event, in which boiling water (at 199ºF or 93ºC, the boiling point at this elevation) erupted above the surface. Any swimmer caught in this part of the creek would have been severely scalded.
