Crackling Lake

Tiny bubbles rise to the surface of the hot water in this hot spring pool.
 

The name of this thermal feature was proposed by Ed Leigh in 1967 because of popping sounds from nearby springs on its southern shore. It was formerly simply called Spring #39 in Dr. Peale's publication entitled Gibbon Geyser Basin.
