419--Wyoming: Yellowstone National Park
@ CherieSpotting     Nov 20 2008 - 14:59 PST
cherie writes: Yellowstone National Park is a wonderland of steamy color and interesting wildlife. Greg and I watched wolves, elk, bears, coyote, squirrels, birds and buffalo. Joining wolf-watchers and geyser gazers, we explored the park’s mud volcanoes, petrified trees, and obsidian cliffs. And we saw enough erupting geysers and geothermic features to hold Greg over for the next decade. I, on the other hand, could always watch one more geyser explode.

It was here in Yellowstone that Greg picked up a new euphemism for farting. On the rare occasion Greg “passes gas” he now says: “I think we just passed another geothermic feature.” You have no idea how horrible it is to be cooped up with a stinky fart inside a vehicle in Yellowstone. You’re stuck because that rotten egg smell is now both outside the car (actually emitting from cracks in the earth) and inside the car (emitting from other cracks.) Greg says he’ll stop imitating geothermic features if I stop finding more geysers to watch. That’s a difficult deal to make, since over half the world’s geysers are located in Yellowstone. Watch our Yellowstone video.
