|Great Fountain Geyser|
|The water in Hot Lake was so hot it was boiling.|
This tiny geyser was called "Young Hopeful Geyser."
Guess they're hoping it grows up!

Overlooking Yellowstone Lake - notice Scott
swatting at the killer mosquitoes.
We drove on around the loop to a boardwalk trail to see mud volcanos. Mud volcanos are bubbling mudpots. They were like the geysers but were mud instead of water. We started off on the boardwalk and noticed a group of people gathered just around the corner. There were three bison standing around, and one of them was agitated. He kept stomping his front hoof and shaking his head up and down. Not going anywhere near that. We hung back for a while until they moved on. It was pretty funny to see a bison walking down the boardwalk – I was just glad they were walking in the opposite direction. My favorite mud volcano was the belching Dragon’s Mouth. You could actually hear it roaring as it was gurgling up boiling mud.
|Anyone up for a mud bath? See it boiling?|
This buffalo was in the middle of a circular boardwalk,
and he wasn't happy about it.
|Ashlee couldn't resist going down the stairs to the water.|
|Emilee found a buffalo hat!|
