I heard from my wife's father-in-law that it was the reflection of the sun off of a polished Airstream that melted the road.

That's an even better and more believable story than mine.

This part is true (and off the subject):

About 8 months ago, I decided to, as much as practical, eliminate from my diet all food that has had salt added to it. In the process of bringing flavor back to my food, I have discovered all sorts of spices and no salt added seasonings. Therefor an analysis of our holding tank contents might show show pretty potent stuff.

Whew, glad we just made the trip from Denver to Yellowstone and the Tetons - imagine that sticky road would have messed up our "Stream of Consciousness"!

I just hope the overdue eruption holds off for another 100 years or so. I would like to get back there again. It is a fascinating and awe inspiring place. For some Yellowstone stories and trivia, see if your local library has a copy of "Death in Yellowstone" by Whittlesey. A collection of stories about the ways that people have managed to end their time through their own fault or nature's while in the park.

We were just there a few weeks ago and were also struck by just how fragile the ground is there. We saw a parking lot that had sprouted a steaming hole in the middle of it, and a drainage grate that had most of the metal eaten away due to the sulfuric steam shooting out of it. My advice: Go see Yellowstone before it blows!

You would NOT want to be in Idaho. Look! So, with the blow of Yellowstone and the ground shaking probably dropping California in the sea, that would leave the island of Washigon, the southwest and the rest of us. The potential burned pot smoke cloud from Colorado would keep us dazed for weeks!

If it blows - is rather simply be in the blast radius and get it over with

I was in NZ and spent time in Rotorua. It is highly volcanic, bubbling mud, fields of muck and steaming water too. There were a few earthquakes too while visiting. Soon after I was there, Christchurch experienced that earthquake that caused so much damage.

Wow Pharmageek, just finished listening to the mp3. Wild place. Yellowstone is the MOST volcanic

We live such short lives as opposed to geological time....

I guess I know so little about yellow stone, but it just seems completely mind numbing that the roads just up and turn to "soup"
Our geology prof in college put the concept in perspective for us: We all remember drinking cocoa made with hot milk. When you blew on it to cool it, a skin would form on the surface of the cocoa. The ball of magma is the cocoa. We all live on the skin...

As one of the park rangers at Yellowstone succinctly put it, "One day we won't have to come visit Yellowstone, because it will come to visit all of us."
