I've been tempted to take the short drive to witness this, I'm about 100 miles South.
The story made the rounds in our local media. It raised a few eyebrows, but that's about it.
In reality though, saying that this is 'Near Yellowstone' is like saying that Las Vegas is 'Near The Ocean'.
It's literally close to the same distance.

I'm fortunate enough to have been to the park approximately 15 times this year alone, unfortunately all work-related.
In fact, I was just there 3 days ago.
I haven't heard any talk about this event being tied to YS, but who knows for sure...

Is the deformation in and around the caldera monitored? are there maps online?

Thanks for pointing that out, but of course the obvious response is that it's relative. There is about a 50 mile difference between Vegas to the ocean and Big Horn to Yellowstone (about 300 miles for the former and 250 miles for the latter.)

But consider that the predominant features of The Yellowstone Caldera itself actually span about 53 by 28 miles.

That's still quite "close," relatively speaking.

Water and ice level mountains over time. Water is a powerful force and freezing and thawing even more powerful.

This is a fairly normal event. Geology 101 in fact.


Lol. Here we go again. Normal on the scale of thousands of years, not normal for literally hundreds of events in the past 7 years.


How many times at that location and when?

I'll buy that.
I'm 5 hours away and if it were to start acting up, then that's entirely too close (as my tagline says...)
I pay quite a bit of attention to it and am always a wee-bit apprehensive when I get around the geothermal features.
You always have that 'What If' in the back of your mind...

When you fly over Wyoming, the entire landscape looks like the frosting on a big Chocolate Cake that's been swirled-around. It moves. A lot...

That is what's being reported as the cause, but regardless: it's still a massive crack opening up in the Earth. Wouldn't you think some sort of seismic read-out would come from activity on such a level as this?

After all we're talking a gash appearing -virtually over-night- that is

750 yards long and about 50 yards wide

Also, don't you find this, along with the timing of the new laws mentioned in the NLBS thread just a bit... unnerving?

I do.

Me too. if upwelling, that could mean something is pushing up from underneath. You added a pic, thats scary looking. It reminds me of what fissures in Hawaii look like. Difference is in Hawaii, they spew lava.

Maybe the warning to not take pics is because these are appearing in more than one spot. Maybe they are monitoring quake activity, that should be easy enough to check. Or is it?

The Loma Prieta Quake in 1989 was over an "extinct" volcano in California. We went up to ground zero the next day, there were areas that were pushed up, with swelling cracks to show here and there. Nothing so big as that one.

While we were driving around we spotted a drill rig, they were drilling into the ground water on top of the mountain. The guys on the well said they were detecting sulfur in the ground water, a sure sign of deep volcanic activity associated with the quake.

Would be interesting to spot similar drilling rigs around Yellow Stone, they would be doing the same thing.


Over the past couple of years when their were those stories about helium 4 releasing, ground shifting, quakes and other stories, one thing I heard, which were rumors and unsubstantiated claims, was that there were a few reports of sinkholes around Yellowstone area. Maybe this played a part in the no photography law.

The 'no photography law', as the article states, is in part to prevent people from showing the negative impact of cattle grazing on public lands. It also has to do with mining, water and mineral interests. It prevents the introduction of evidence in any lawsuits, but that's another story better covered by NLBS.
It's ranching, oil and coal protecting their interests. Without those things, Wyoming's economy would shrivel-up and die.
That's not to say that it's not a bunch of totalitarian BS...

There are no camera police. Take all the pictures you want.

This is an example of something worth taking a photo of and discussing on public lands that is now illegal to do. I hope no one gets charged with anything. Yellowstone is in Wyoming, isn't there a lot to take photos of in the wilderness there?

I just re-watched the NLBS video about the new law, and it says the law applies to collecting data on government and state owned lands, as well as "open land." The law defines "open land" as "land located outside the exterior boundaries of any city, town, or sub-division."

A very broad definition indeed.

I really don't know how they intend to enforce this law, nor the status of Yellowstone within the law, but I believe we'll see soon enough.

The whole thing stinks to high heaven IMO, and apparently NLBS agrees, hence the thread. I believe there is much more to it than free-range cows and sheep, right along the lines of the topic of this thread.

Indeed there is, 6 Gazillion Japanese tourists and their cameras can't be wrong.

The "crack" is one of millions over millions of years. Fissures, sinkholes, tectonic plates separating, volcanic eruptions, tidal waves, hurricanes, tsunamis and a dozen other changes natural and un-natural, expected and un-expected that create the landscape and has....and will continue to...long after human beings no longer exist on this small blue dot.

I dont think the cavemen and women sat grunting and pointing at the smoking volcano and shaking ground. It didnt matter to them, because it was a normal earth-change to be expected. Even if/when the Great Yellowstone cauldera blows space-high...it will still be a natural, periodical dynamic expectedly normal earth change...no matter how terrible it will be to those alive to see...and prob. be killed by it.

As far as the banning photos etc...so what? Means nothing in the end. What will happen will no matter mass-hysteria or not.

As a resident for 17 years now, I'd have to disagree. It's just our legislators doing what they do best, protecting their interests. Does make for a juicy conspiracy though...

The "crack" is one of millions over millions of years...... [point #1]

I dont think the cavemen and women sat grunting and pointing at the smoking volcano and shaking ground. It didnt matter to them, because it was a normal earth-change to be expected..... [point #2]

As far as the banning photos etc...so what? Means nothing in the end. What will happen will no matter mass-hysteria or not.... [point #3]


Point #1: A Phage style "No." for you here. This fissure reportedly opened up within the span of two weeks. Granted, it's been in the works for much longer than that, but this feature is brand new as far as we human observers are concerned. It happened at an incredible pace, previously undetected.

Point #2: I can't imagine how you could come to that conclusion, considering those people indigenous to volcanic regions typically worshipped and gave regular sacrifices to those great and mighty volcanic "Gods" before them. It most certainly did matter to them. I have to chuckle at your assumptions over the concerns of cavemen. Also... those periods of massive change brought widespread mass extinction, which was survived by such futile human observation and innovation.

Point #3: Nothing means anything in the End. But... since we're not quite there just yet, I believe there is still some merit to monitoring and being involved with the activities of the Earth and Mankind. More so than ever, I would say, in light of the onset of a period of massive change. Mass hysteria must be avoided until the very last moments in order for any type of coherent plan to be implemented successfully. (If indeed there can be one at all)

Here's an article from our local news that has a few more photos (See? They're not illegal!)
In my circle of friends I'm pretty much considered the alarmist when it comes to Yellowstone, but this one's just not doin it for me.

Yet...

If it gets any more local coverage or drastically moves again, I'll try to link it for ya.
