Frigid air drifts over the geothermally heated stream aptly named Hot Creek, drawing steam fog into the air, and depositing hoarfrost on the grasses above the waterline. In winter, unlike the nearby volcano Mammoth Mountain (left rear), this is a place of solitude and silence, save the gurgling of the running water. When the underlying Long Valley caldera next erupts, the silence breaks.
