Mud Pots

I'm so busy this week I might as well be in Namafjall Hverir (Námafjall Hverir), Iceland. How I wish I were... Walking around Namafjall is like being on mars. It's a dramatic change in the landscape, creating a small area with a stark red landscape covered with fumaroles and mud pots. Being a high temperature geothermal area, temperatures 1000 meters down can get well over 500F.

Of course, you don't have to travel that far to see a mud pot... Yellowstone has a few doozies...
