Envision witches stirring at Hot Creek

In one of the most seismically active areas on earth, water boils and bubbles in pools, and cascades into Hot Creek in the eastern Sierra. Whitish minerals line some pools, looking as cool and blue as a backyard oasis. Steam hovers and floats. Geysers explode, some as high as 6 feet.

Ken Cooley has scrambled all over the Capitol, inside the walls and out, during restoration that began in the late 1970s and since its completion in 1982. When he was a young staffer in 1977, his boss asked him to lead tours and answer queries as to what justified extravagant expenditures on the Capitol, the largest rehabilitation project in the Western Hemisphere.
