Donít cook your chicken in the geyser!

MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyoming — An Idaho Falls man and two others were in hot water after being found with cooking pots and two chickens in a thermal area of Yellowstone National Park.
A ranger received reports on Aug. 7 that a group was hiking toward Shoshone Geyser Basin with cooking pots, a park spokeswoman told Friday. The ranger responded and discovered two whole chickens in a burlap sack sitting in a hot spring with a cooking pot nearby.
This isn’t the first-time park visitors have been in trouble for trying to cook chicken near a geyser. In 2001, a Seattle television show host and producer dug a hole in the park to show how natural heat could cook chicken. The show was reportedly fined $150 and placed on two-year probation for disturbing mineral deposits in a national park and stepping off trails near steaming geysers.

Some people are accustomed to other kinds of public lands and don’t realize just how restrictive national parks are. The list of rules is long, enforcement vigilant, and fines steep. You really have to mind your P’s and Q’s. More like visiting a museum than camping, since they protect some of the most unique, sensitive, and beautiful natural wonders.

Of course there will always be a few that know and do stuff anyway.
