Wyde-Open Wyoming

Today I struggle with a bad cold and a heavy backlog of work. But two years ago, I, like the buffalo pictured above right, roamed the boardwalks and by-ways of Yellowstone, taking in the geysers, hot springs, and boiling sulfurous mudpits.

There is a lake so acid that it has a Ph factor of 2 - nasty stuff - I'd hate to have been the Native American that 'discovered' it....
