Our first stop was Mud Volcano, where the boys exclaimed about the smell before we were even out of the car. They walked up the hill to see several of the bubbling cauldrons, and discovered a buffalo was lounging by the pool. He was literally just a few feet from the trail rail.Nathan got a quick picture where you can see his head.
We drove on to Norris Geyser Basin. The line to get a spot in the parking lot took us about 20 minutes, but we found a space for our tiny car and walked down to see several hot pools, mud pots, and spouts. The boys took a little hike around some of the pools while I stayed nearer the car and Hanna.
