Mud Volcano and Dragon’s Mouth Spring

We traveled to the southern end of Hayden Valley to check out the Mud Volcano area; our first “in-depth” look at geothermal features.

The Dragon’s Mouth Spring was neat.  Lots of continuous hissing steam.

The mud volcano was…muddy?  And hot, boiling, and steamy.

Like good tourists, we stayed on the boardwalk, but several lone bison did not.  We didn’t see any drop through to the boiling springs below, but many posters informed that it could happen, you never know.
