With all the recent earthquakes around the world going on. Is there something else going on at the 1st Yellowstone caldera? I think the first thing they would do is start closing off trails around areas showing signs of activity. Also there was that thing about Wyoming making it illegal to publish scientific data. The military setting up for what seems like marshal law/foreign invasion. Jenny lake seems to be right under the corner of the biggest, oldest caldera, that is where the trails are closed. Would a caldera show any signs of eruption? I just thought I would contribute some doom porn today.

The oldest caldera is the last active. As time has progressed, the caldera has moved farther west each time. (I may be wrong on my direction, it's late.)

Could be due to trail maintenance, herd of bison, sink holes fun the spring thaw, or just about anything.

Jenny Lake area after the first snowfall is gorgeous. I hope that picturesque area is not a part of something nefarious. I would hate to see such beauty permanently disturbed in any way.

It stated in the first paragraph of the article that it was for weather damage and maintenance.

Work on the backcountry trail system from the west shore of Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point will continue during the summer of 2015. Detour routes will be well marked for visitors wishing to reach Hidden Falls or Cascade Canyon during the 2015 hiking season.

I know that, I read the article. I was insinuating that maybe that was just a cover because they don't want people looking around a certain area.

In Yellowstone, the iconic Brink of the Lower Falls trail is closed in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone because of a mud and rock slide that deposited a 7-by-8-foot boulder on the route, effectively blocking the path.


Common thing and you can't exactly hide earthquakes.

The number of earthquakes around the world is normal and none of them would be linked to Yellowstone in any way.


Average Annually
8 and higher = 1
7 - 7.9 = 15
6 - 6.9 = 134
5 - 5.9 = 1319
4 - 4.9 = 13,000
(estimated)
3 - 3.9 = 130,000
(estimated)
2 - 2.9 = 1,300,000
(estimated)

Earthquake Facts

Of course those are averages so the numbers fluctuate over the years.

In regards to Wyoming "making science illegal": using Slate op-eds as your baseline for something is fraught with perils.

The law has criminalized publishing data that was obtained by trespassing.

And yes I realize it's a blog. However, it's a blog that isn't written by a guy who' works for a group that just got sued for collecting samples on people's private property. Which the op-ed on Slate was. Perhaps they should've called it "Slant" instead.

Kinda funny and I am sure it's nothing, but that was the first thing to enter my mind as well. "What are they hiding?" LOL, been on this site too long.a reply to: bananashooter

I don't know if this has anything to do with the closing off of a route near the lake you mentioned, but I read recently something about Yellowstone having e-coli in the water, and a weird new law that people can be imprisoned for a year for sharing photos of Yellowstone for photo competitions/ articles etc.

People are upset that they'd rather criminalise people than deal with the problem. Personally I'm unsure how a photo can advertise e-coli, I may have not joined the dots mentally! but there's lots of articles talking about it.

I can't post a link because I use my phone and its awkward, but Google 'Yellowstone e-coli' and you'll find it a very recent topic.

Thank you for that link. Hopefully that will help others understand. I'm sure there are a few fearmongers who would love to take that and run, freaking alot of people out.

DENY IGNORANCE!!!

With the trails, it could easily be maintenance. Yes, they could close them for possible eruptions, but is there any reason to think the maintenance isn't real? Depending on the trails, that could take some time. The only way I can see to know is to talk to someone that's been recently, before they were closed, or someone that could confirm the mudslide business.

What's this about Wyoming? Do you have a link for that?

Overall, watching Yellowstone isn't a bad idea. If it blows, it would be very bad.
