Yellowstone National Park
Artist Paint Pots
The Artist Paint Pots area of Yellowstone National Park holds steaming pools, mud pots (roiling mud mixed with sulfuric acid and steam) and paint pots (mud pots colored with dissolved minerals). The trails take you around the area, keeping you above the ground so you get the best views. Plus you stay safe from the boiling waters.
