Not a thermal incident, but when I was at Yellowstone several years ago, we stopped and looked down the hill off the side of the road and we saw a grizzly cub walking around. Of course, some genius decided that he needed to scale down the hill to get a closer shot of the cub with his camera. If there is a cub around, there is a very protective mother nearby. Fortunately for the f-stop idiot, she didn't show up while he was down there with the cub.

I feel badly for the person but not enough to demand the park does anything differently. At some point we are responsible for our own actions.

Sorry link didn't post.

There were quite a few people around it before it began to move. This time of year they are especially dangerous.

As I read all the fun people are having condemning this guy, I can't help but keep in mind that we have all done stupid things in our lives from time to time.

Exactly. But the story should be a cautionary tale.

I have an old book called Adventures in Geyser Land (1933 I think). People have been burning themselves for a long time.

Yep, just like humans enjoy having several members of a different species circling around them.

I just don't understand it. Surely these people are privy to the info. If nothing else, isn't youtube required viewing at this point?
