(Yellowstone) - Buckrail reader Olivia Garcia took a snowmobile tour of Yellowstone National Park on Sunday and caught some stellar shots. This photo is of a mud volcano. According to YellowstoneNationalPark.com
, "The 1871 Hayden
Expedition named this thermal feature. At that time Mud Volcano was a very
active mud spring with bellowing and exploding mud. In later years since
its discovery it has not shown the same forcefulness. However, minor
earthquake tremors during 1979 increased heat and water activity and Mud
Volcano began bursting from the crater, spilling mud across the boardwalks.
This activity decreased shortly thereafter and it has since been a quiet
caldron with occasional churning caused by rising gases."
