Dave Reichert: Stinking Holes in the Ground

Welcome to Yellowstone. Hold your nose!

“Most of the odor comes from sulphur dioxide gas, bubbling up from the hot springs, geysers, and other thermal features. Sulphur dioxide is the smell that’s identified with rotten eggs. When the wind is right (?) you need to hold your breath.” Dave Reichert.

As it happens, the government of the mighty US of A has shut down today, October 1, 2013, so, you can’t go to Yellowstone. But now we’ve shown you the beauty in the thermals, close your eyes and imagine the stench.
