Heed the warnings in Yellowstone!

If you have ever visited Yellowstone National Park you know the dangers in the park.  There are signs everywhere warning visitors.  We are warned about the animals being wild, the dangers of falling rocks, changing weather conditions and last but not least, the park’s thermal features.  Boiling mud, boiling and acidic water.  Any one of those three are reasons enough for me to stay on the boardwalk.  However, inevitability, every year there seems to be a news report of someone falling into a hot spring.  Hopefully this young man will recover!  Please heed the warnings if you visit the park.  The signs are there for a reason.

“A North Carolina man was severely burned Tuesday evening after falling into a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park, according to park officials. ”
