Hot Creek Geological Site

From the Hatchery we drove down a bumpy dirt road to find the Hot Creek Geological Site. This place was unbelievably amazing. Boiling hot springs, fumaroles and geysers are found here. Some of these pump hot water into the water flowing down from Mammoth Creek warming the water into what is called Hot Creek. Swimming is officially not advised. What makes Hot Creek so spectacular is the view, and the way the water mixes. The colors were amazing.
