The Sulfur Springs thermal area was the site of combustion and melting of sulfur deposits in 1994 that produced a sulfur flow over an area of about 1 sq km, prompting reports of a volcanic eruption.  Measured fumarole temperatures at Sulfur Springs have ranged between about 90 and 100 degrees Centigrade over the past century. Photo by Paul Kimberly, 2002 (Smithsonian Institution).
