Artists Paintpots

The last thermal feature we visited in Yellowstone National Park was the area of the Artists Paintpots, located not far from the Norris Geyser Basin. This photo offers an overview of the place and was taken from the trail around the area, which consists of geysers (like Blood Geyser, where the steam is seen in the photo), vents and in particular mud pots, which was the main reason I wanted to visit the area, the bubbling mud of these acidic springs and its sound are quite comical to watch, but not very photogenic (it’s much better to make a video of it, which I did as well), however, I did add an example of a mud pot to the WS.
