Greetings from the Bluff Park Back Porch, way up yonder on Shades Mountain (1,109′) in Alabama:


Now?!  Onward to another volcanic – lava feature.


When we think of Thermal Features, we think of H _ _   S _ _ _ _ _ _ .   What is it?
We’ve got all that volcanic energy to the surface, now what do we do with It?

See below for discussion.

–    HOT SPRINGS >>> Topic for the Week.
HOT SPRINGS– A pool or discharge of hot water that does not throw water into the air.  ( It should be noted that a few pools in Yellowstone long thought to be only hot springs, have surprised observers by erupting. Some of these surprises have followed earthquakes.) Escaping  gases can cause the hot spring to spout or “boil” even when water temperatures are below the boiling point.
