Looks very tempting to jump in, right?
Not a great idea though, these pools are just a little too hot 🔥 for our bodies, also the chemicals in here, that gives them their colorful appearance, are not healthy for us. Conclusion: stay out and admire them from the side!
Из гор здесь тоже, бывает, выходит пар, точнее натуральный токсичный газ. Сероводород.
Я не поняла, насколько опасно им дышать, но из-за запаха долго там находиться в любом случае не получится - минут 15 максимум ради эффектных фотографий.
Хотя, конечно, мой пост с тарантулом по эффектности не переплюнет ничто.

🎫 это просто гора у дороги, входа на неё в принципе нет
💡а вот рядом есть горячие источники Red Rock Hot Spring, где за 100 песо можно отдохнуть в тёплой серной ванне 🙃

The Pacific Lake of Fire : What do you know about it?
Lake of fire "Lake of Fire" redirects here. For other uses, see Lake of Fire (disambiguation).
A "Lake of Fire" redirects here. For other uses, see Lake of Fire (disambiguation).
A lake of fire appears in both ancient Egyptian and Christian religion, as well as in Plato's Gorgias as a place of after-death punishment of the wicked. The phrase is used in five verses of the Book of Revelation. In the biblical context, the concept seems analogous to the Jewish Gehenna, or the more common concept of Hell. The image of the lake of fire was taken up by the early Christian Hippolytus of Rome in about the year 230 and has continued to be used by modern Christians. Prior to Christianity, Plato identified the lake with Tartarus, where the souls of the wicked are tormented until it is time for them to be reborn, and where some souls are left.

An earthquake of magnitude 5.2 hit Reykjanes peninsula yesterday morning. It was felt in many places in the capital when the ground started to shake around 10:26. The quake is the largest recorded in the Reykjanes peninsula since 2013.
According to the Meteorological Office, it was most likely the result of tension equalization after land rise accrued around Mt. Thorbjörn at the beginning of this year.
Lava lakes are large volumes of molten lava, usually basaltic, contained in a volcanic vent, crater, or broad depression. The term is used to describe both lava lakes that are wholly or partly molten and those that are solidified (sometimes referred to as frozen lava lakes in this case).
Lava lakes have been observed to exhibit a range of behaviours. A "constantly circulating, apparently steady-state" lava lake was observed during the 1969–1971 Mauna Ulu eruption of Kilauea, Hawaii.
Persistent lava lakes are a rare phenomenon, why and how these lakes persist remains unknown. 🌋🌋

Hell's Gate geothermal park is NZ's most active geothermal reserve. For over 800 years this land has provided awe-inspiring power and natural healing properties, and it was used by Māori warriors to heal their battle-scarred bodies. The Steaming Cliffs is the hottest pool in the park. The surface temperature of the this pool is 122 C and in 1 meter deep the temperature has already increased to 144 C. The boiling activity is constantly changing and can reach the height of 3m. #geothermal#wonderland#healing#naturalpowers#hothothot#legend#power#maori#reserve#mudpools#hotsprings#volcanicactivity

Don’t define your world in black and white because there is so much hiding amongst the greys.
Mýrdalsjökull is the fourth largest ice cap located just south of the Icelandic highlands. It covers approximately 600 square kilometers (232 square miles) and its highest peak is almost 1500 meters tall. This was one of our favorite glaciers to visit because of how unique and different it was! Most of the glaciers that we saw had a light blue hue to them, but this one was streaked with deep layers of black ash and sand from past volcanic eruptions. Wait did I just say volcanic eruptions? Yup, you read that correctly. Mýrdalsjökull sits atop one of the country’s most active volcanoes 🌋 - the notorious Katla.
According to scientists, on average, Katla has erupted once every fifty years since 930 AD. However, the last major eruption beneath Katla was in 1918, in which huge floods occurred and actually extended the southern coastline by five kilometers. It is currently several years overdue for an eruption, but don’t fret! Katla is monitored heavily and whenever seismic activity increases, all the roads around it shut down. Hiking on top of an active volcano isn’t for the faint-hearted, but if you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, add this stop to your bucket list!

There is a small but fascinating museum in Taupo which features a carved Maori meeting house, historical displays of volcanic activity, a 15m long waka (boat crafted from a single totara log) and a quirky Maori gallery (pics not allowed in the art section). There is also the "Ora Garden of Wellbeing" in the courtyard, a re-creation of NZ’s gold-medal-winning entry into the 2004 Chelsea Flower Show. Worth a visit, especially if it's raining a lot like today!
Soda lakes are caustic, incredibly salty lakes whose and pH make them nearly impossible for most animals to live in. Yet flamingos choose to breed there. 75% of the world’s lesser flamingos have their babies at Lake Natron in Tanzania. Lesser is just what the species is called, by the way -- we’re so sorry, flamingos, we can’t believe they’d say that about you. Other flamingos have similarly awesome capabilities, but they’re not as laser-focused on breeding at this ONE CAUSTIC LAKE as the so-called lesser species.
Soda lakes are named after the caustic chemicals dissolved in their water, not after your favorite brand of cola. They form in places where the earth’s crust contains large amounts of these chemicals thanks to volcanic activity bringing them to the surface, usually sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate. The lakes have limited inflow and outflow of water, so the chemicals remain very concentrated, and the water level rises and falls mainly as a result of evaporation.
🏴Reading my captions, you will really appreciate the photo!
🇮🇹Leggendo le mie didascalie, apprezzerai davvero la foto! 🏴Thanks for the fantastic photo @irmopradelli 🇮🇹Grazie per la fantastica foto @irmopradelli 🏴Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi and Panarea, are the seven jewels that form the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands.
🇮🇹Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Stromboli, Filicudi, Alicudi e Panarea, sono i sette gioielli che formano l'arcipelago delle Isole Eolie. 🏴Thanks to the volcanic activity still in progress, the Aeolian Islands give off a charm that enchants. They offer visitors natural environments rich in fauna and flora. They are full of wonderful beaches, coves, caves, inlets and breathtaking views. They hypnotize sea lovers with their fantastic backdrops, some are real natural aquariums with bubbles that come from the center of the earth. Scholars dated the first human settlements in 4000 B.C. The processing and trade of obsidian, the volcanic glass due to the cooling of the lava, brought great prosperity to the islands. The islands still provide material that continues to enrich the science of volcanology.
🇮🇹Grazie all'attività vulcanica ancora in corso, le Isole Eolie emanano un fascino che incanta. Offrono ai visitatori ambienti naturali ricchi di fauna e flora. Sono piene di meravigliose spiagge, calette, grotte, insenature e panorami mozzafiato. Ipnotizzano gli amanti del mare con i loro fantastici fondali, alcuni sono veri acquari naturali con bolle che provengono dal centro della terra. Gli studiosi hanno datato i primi insediamenti umani nel 4000 a.C. La lavorazione e il commercio dell'ossidiana, il vetro vulcanico dovuto al raffreddamento della lava, portarono grande prosperità alle isole. Le isole forniscono ancora materiale che continua ad arricchire la scienza della vulcanologia.
Here's a classic from Wai O Tapu Geothermal Wonderland. A place where that is highly volcanic and the earth's crust is so thin you can see the mud bubbling due to the activity below the surface.
This is the infamous Champagne Pools, a 900 year old, 65m deep, hot spring that was formed by a volcanic eruption. It gets it name from the tiny Co2 bubbles that move through the hot water.
It's such a cool thing to see but be prepared for the SMELL!!! As well as Co2, there's also an abundance of Sulpher, a mineral that gives off an AWEFUL eggy smell when it reacts with the air. All that pretty steam? Yea, it smells of egg!
Keep your eyes peeled on the blog where this week we'll be talking about Wai-O-Tapu and whether it's worth the hefty ticket price, or if it's just one big tourist trap. Have you been? What did you think?
Lake Pinatubo, The Phillipines • It took catching a taxi at 2am, a collectivo at 3am, a 4x4 at 5am and a two hour hike to reach this spot. I guess what I’m trying to say, is if there’s a hike with a pretty view involved - you can always count me in #itsalifestyle
