That's just the temperature of the water flowing over the roots. The air temperature can be 90+ F.
There's a spring-feed creek like this near my parents' house. When I was a kid, we loved stopping at the creek on a blazingly hot, humid, summer day and splashing on some water that was lucky to reach 60 F.

is the range map for Darlingtonia californica.
If you go to Google, enter "climate Cave Junction Oregon", and then click on the "Graphs" link, you'll see the conditions that the wild plants grow in.
Sarracenia Northwest has a good cultivation care guide
for this species.
