Yellowstone | Dragon’s Mouth Springs

Warning: watch where you park. The steam vents were coming up through the parking lot. Quite funny. Also, possibly quite dangerous.

Dragon’s Mouth Spring is a small pool backed up against a hillside where a water and steam spew out of a cave, producing a roaring sound. A sign at Dragon’s Mouth Spring reads:

“An unknown park visitor named this feature around 1912, perhaps due to the water that frequently surges from the cave like the lashing of a dragon’s tongue. Until 1994, this dramatic wave-like action often splashed water as far as the boardwalk. The rumbling sounds are caused by steam and other gasses exploding through the water, causing it to crash against the walls of the hidden caverns.”

    Yellowstone is one place I have never had the opportunity to visit and explore. Your photos are beautiful and looks like you had a great time. I will just have to enjoy looking at your photos.

    I have always traveled south, for vacation, but this place looks very interesting. The photos look beautiful and this would be a place I would definitely want to visit some day.

    Wow, what a cool sight to see! I need to figure out why it doesn’t splash water as far as the boardwalk anymore. How neat.

    I have never been to Yellowstone. Being in Canada it does make it hard to explore across the border but my mom used to travel there when she was little. She always had the best stories. It looks so beautiful there!
