We weren’t sure we’d have time to stop here, but we did, and it proved to be an interesting area to explore. We had already seen Norris, West Thumb and the Old Faithful geyser areas, so we thought we had seen it all. We didn’t!...More

Mud Volcano area, including Dragon’s Mouth was incredible. It is like seeing into the earth. The entire area has a sci if feel to it. The colors, smells, and belching gasses were almost incomprehensible in the sense that this is coming out of our earth....More

I found this one very interesting. It looks like a big pot of mud boiling. It may sound odd, but it's fun to watch, and different from most other features in the park.
