Geysers, Hot Springs and Mud Spots

The geothermal areas of Yellowstone include several geyser basins as well as other geothermal features such as hot springs and mud spots. The number of thermal features in Yellowstone is estimated at 10,000 and 200 to 250 geysers erupt in Yellowstone each year, making it the place with the highest concentration of active geysers in the world. This is one of Jason's favorite spots to visit.
This area is always amazin to see!  It's also really neat in the winter when these "pools" are surrounded by snow but still hot.  No pictures of Cody at this location...the walkways are very important for safety and its super dangerous to get off of the path. The ground is not solid and the water is boiling hot!  So, we kept Cody in our arms or holding our hands the entire time!
