On the division line between the N-American plate and the Eurasian plate lies the lake Laugarvatn in Southern Iceland. Baking bread in the sand at the side of the lake is an old tradition.
The bread has been in the boiling hot sand for 24 hours and is now fully baked.
The geothermal area is quite powerful. Look at the “border line” between the plates:
Clearly, this natural bakery is no usual place.

I have a BS degree in geology, BA in anthropology, graduated in Chinese language and as a certified tourist guide. I provide this website about my contribution to answer the greatest question remaining about our Earth. I have analyzed the convection rolls within the Earth's mantle and how they affect the surface. This makes it possible to provide many interesting examples about geology found on my blog.
