Mud Volcano

Beware of the rotten egg smell when stepping out of the car to view Mud Volcano and its surrounding mud pots.  Hydrogen sulfide gas makes is presence known by its strong aroma wafting through the pines.    The mud pots and fumaroles (also called steam vents) in this area occur when the ground water boils away faster than it can be recharged.
