|Jan exhibits Olympic concentration!|
After Jan picked her way precariously across the stream we pondered what was living there, fascinated by what we observed.
How hot and/or acidic is this water, anyway? Should I or should I not use my handy–dandy finger as a thermometer and pH indicator to find out?

Using your finger to test any thermal area is not a good idea!
No thermal areas were actually probed nor digits lost in the recording of this public service announcement.
