      Mud Volcano's Dragon's Mouth
    by KimberlyAnn

Mud Volcano is not the most beautiful of the active areas in the park, but it is interesting. I especially love the Black Dragon?s Caldron, and the mud volcano is so much fun late in the summer or in the fall, when the waters are not watered down by spring rains and snow melt. I read once that the mud volcano sometimes would hurl football-sized blobs of mud. I have never seen this, but I have seen it when it is thick and plopping out tennis ball size pieces of mud. The Dragon?s Caldron is not very pretty to look at, but the sound that it makes is worth the stop.

Directions: On the West side of the main park road between Fishing Bridge and Canyon Village.
