Michael is shaken by earthquake

While climbing along a portion of the Knottmye fault, we actually experienced a small earthquake which was centered nearby. Michael has two arms and a leg off the ground, it's about a 3 on the Richter Scale, or MM VII on the Modified Mercalli (MM) Scale Of Earthquake Intensity.

Kathy measures water temperature
The earthquake did, however, cause a small crack to appear and a new hot spring resulted. Here Kathy is about to test the temperature of the super heated water.
