River near Yellowstone National Park Begins to Boil Without Warning

Shoshone River near YNP emitting noxious gasses; the stretch of river boiling “like jets in a Jacuzzi” —Report

The Shoshone River, which  runs just east of Yellowstone National Park (YNP) is boiling. The event was initially recorded by Dewey Vanderhoff, a photographer who spotted the boiling river and noted other bizarre features therein, reported Mysterious Universe.

“I’ve lived here all of my life and I’ve never seen it. It was pretty impressive. The river right there is a really dark green. With a polarizing filter it really popped out. [It bubbled] like jets in a Jacuzzi,” Vanderhoff said.

YNP, home to the Yellowstone Caldera, is the world’s largest “supervolcano,” covering about 2,220,000 acres with more than 10,000 thermal features and 300 geysers.

YNP officials were forced to close Firehole Lake Drive as well as access to several geysers and thermal features in the park after extreme heat melted asphalt, turning it into a “soupy mess.” The hotspot reportedly extends  beyond the pavement, with parts of the ground saturated with boiling water in July 2014.
