Hot Pot or Hot Potting is the act of trying to soak in a national park’s thermal features. It is illegal and obviously frowned upon for safety and environment reasons. An Oregon man who died in June of this year was looking to do exactly that with his sister in Yellowstone National Park. The two left the boardwalk near Pork Chop Geyser and walked hundreds of feet in search of a place to hot spot. Sable was taking a video with her cell phone when her brother reached down to check the water temperature. He slipped, fell into the thermal pool and burned to death. The man was 23 years old. Search and rescue saw the man’s body floating in the pool, but were unable to recover it because of a lightning storm. They went back the next day to recover it, but due to the boiling acidic water, there was nothing left to recover.
