If You’re Visiting Yellowstone This Summer, Please Be Careful Around Hot Springs

1 Viewed Admin 0 respond

Yellowstone National Park is one of America’s most spectacular treasures.

And the park’s hot springs draw huge crowds every year. One wrong move near one of these springs, however, and your life could end in the blink of an eye. That’s why nearby paths are clearly marked and labeled.

Despite all the warning signs, tourists still wander too close to these scalding attractions. Their latest victim was 23-year-old Colin Nathaniel Scott from Portland, Oregon.

Scott was walking in the park with his sister Sable. Together, the two managed to wander 225 yards off the designated path, at which point they slipped into the spring at Norris Geyser Basin.

Sable was able to make it out. Scott, unfortunately, was not.

Sable reported the accident to park rangers who immediately began searching for the doomed young man.


They were able to recover a few personal effects, but Scott’s body was nowhere to be found.


They speculate that the intense heat and acidity of the hot spring caused the corpse to disintegrate. There was nothing left for them to find.

This tourist is far from the only person to have fallen victim to Yellowstone’s hot springs. If you’re planning on visiting Yellowstone this summer, please be careful and heed the park rangers’ warnings!
