it doesn't look very hot to me. Did you sample the temperature?

It was pretty cold. The name of that lake has to do with gas that bubbles up from the bottom of the lake in summer making it look like it's boiling.

Very interesting. I've seen that phenomenon before. I think it's caused by rotting organic material on the bottom of the lake, which turns into methane.
