    Well, it is a wilderness, not Disney, after all. And one with geothermal issues!

    But ouch, that had to hurt!

    I often worried about what might happen to people who fell or slipped at Yellowstone. I reached down (like a dope) and touched the water running under the bridge at Hot Creek in Yellowstone, burned the carp out of my fingers!! It was just below boiling, but I didn't realize it because it was far from the hot spring. i thought it would have cooled downa nd been just like a hot tub. That poor lady, that must have been so painful.

    From what I remember, it is one of the main trails to hike. There are tons of signs saying to stay on the trail, but this sounds like a total accident. Maybe they will name the newly discovered hot spot after her.

    Yikes; that's where we are going for vacation this summer. Perhaps we should stay off the trails?!

    Before anyone goes out in Yellowstone they should read the book "Death in Yellowstone." It used to be available thru Amazon. Yellowstone isn't an ordinary wilderness park.

    I went there about 13 years ago, so my memory is a little rusty. Some of the places could be very dangerous for young children. You walk on a trail very close to areas you must stay away from, so for younger children that might pull away to explore, would be dangerous. It is beautiful there, and you should definately go.

    Tnx for the fantastic link heavenlydaze. The photos make me want to visit, but I think I might walk a little scared. I pray the woman that fell through the hole will be ok.
