It is a cool morning with bright sun. A hot spring would be nice to see about now.
Some hot springs come from down in the crust of the Earth where water is heated by the rocks. They farther down in the crust, the hotter things get. Other hot springs come from the hot magma that comes from volcanoes.

It you see stem rising from a pool of water, I wouldn’t stick a finger or toe in there. It could be very hot. Too hot.
