Hot Creek

Hot Creek

Hot Creek flows down from Mammoth Lakes and becomes geothermally heated as it mixes with another source. These steam effusions are the result of the ambient temp being below freezing in this case(23 F) and the flowing creek water being much warmer or even hot. There are periodic geysers as well that shoot 6ft straight up. People are no longer permitted to swim here as there have been 14 deaths in recent years.

This is a vertical pano with the DFA 90mm 2.8 Macro lens on the 645Z.
