  • This is another fascinating feature of Yellowstone. Located near the Hayden Valley, it's another look into the phenomenal geological history of Yellowstone although it's much different in appearance....  more »
  • This was a neat little stop. It does not take long to see everything here. It was neat to see the mud bubbling. There is a boardwalk around the area, so it is easy to walk.  more »
  • This is one of my absolute favorite spots in the whole park. The small hike is one of the most fun for chances at seeing wild life as well as observing some beautiful and interesting thermal features. Make sure to take the time to admire the views on the boardwalk hike around the bluff.
  • Enjoyed this location. The Mud Volcano was very active and boiling. It was a little crowded and the parking lot pretty full but a little bit of patience paid off.
