i had meant to put a question mark in the title. so you were there, huh? ive never been but would really like to go before it is wiped off the map. one of the articles states activity picked up in 2007 and slowed down in 08. im curious how big that bubble is at the bottom of the lake, now.

closest ive been to there is boise and lake cascade. very nice country.
Its been at its highest activity here the last half year or so. There's only been about 1000 quakes. One side of the lake has risen enough that the water is in the trees on the other side of the lake. But it was like that the last time I was there.

You should take time to go see it. Gotta warn ya though, go early or late in the season. Too many people, we made the mistake of going in july. We thought we'd take a drive around the lake, a ride that should only take about 2 hrs. It took us 7 freakin hours. And thats only making a few stops, always have to stop at Old Faithful. But the traffic is horrible, if someone see's a squirrel, they park in the road to watch it and so does everybody else. Backs traffic up for miles. By the time you get up to where people are lookin I expect to see a bear or something cool, but nooo, people out of their cars taking pics of stupid chipmunk.

Armageddon is upon us I can't get to one of my favorite fishing spots.

Yellowstone road melts, sites closed

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The ever-changing thermal geology of Yellowstone National Park has created a hot spot that melted an asphalt road and closed access to popular geysers and other attractions at the height of tourist season, officials said Thursday.

As they examined possible fixes, park officials warned visitors not to hike into the affected area, where the danger of stepping through solid-looking soil into boiling-hot water was high.

"There are plenty of other great places to see thermal features in the park," Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said. "I wouldn't risk personal injury to see these during this temporary closure."

Naturally changing thermal features often damage Yellowstone's roads and boardwalks. Steaming potholes in asphalt roads and parking lots — marked off by traffic cones — are fairly common curiosities.

However, the damage to Firehole Lake Drive is unusually severe and could take several days to fix. The 3.3-mile loop six miles north of Old Faithful takes visitors past Great Fountain Geyser, White Dome Geyser and Firehole Lake.

Unusually warm weather for Yellowstone — with high temperatures in the mid-80s — has contributed to turning the road into a hot, sticky mess.

"We've got some ideas. We're going to try them. Our maintenance staff has really looked at the issue," Nash said.
