  ochre mud holes
by zrim

From Becky's travel journal: "Paint Pots, ok. Basically a flat walk to ochre-colored muddy area. Crossed a bouncy suspension bridge to get there."

She's right, of course. Just big yellow mud puddles. For a kick, try scooping some up and painting yourself ochre. I did, but just on my socks.
