Swimmable water?

There's no active hydrothermal activity to warm the water at all, and when I was there in midsummer the air temp was only about 60 degrees F. But if you don't mind being a little chilly I dont think there's any reason you couldn't take a dip if so inclined.

Crater lakes always look so cool, nice photos Tony.
