The overflow of the Frying Pan Lake (see last week’s post) forms a hot water creek that finds several small hot springs in its path. The water contains a variety of minerals like antimony, molybdenum, arsenic and tungsten. These minerals leave deposits, thus creating – together with the bright green algae – pictures of almost unnatural beauty. Indeed, they are not unlike the heavily polluted environments of certain industrial chemical plants.
