Boiling (and freezing) in Yellowstone’s rivers

Ahh, the joys of owning a low-cost videocamera. Anyway, I bring you along to the Boiling River inside Yellowstone National Park. It’s an experience that I can’t quite explain to you other than to say my butt was freezing and my legs were burning when I shot this on my Sanyo Xacti HD1. Nice camera, by the way — stores videos on a SD card instead of tape, which makes it a lot easier to put up on Blip.TV, albeit the quality isn’t even close to the Sony. It’s also a lot smaller and a lot less expensive (about $700 at B&H).

On the video you’ll see Christian Long, CEO of DesignShare. He was a high-school teacher who now helps design schools around the world.

  1. Boiling River as the Yellowstone Supervolcano, which will destroy the USA as we know it, lies underneath.

    Happy Thought for the Day… ;)

  3. Christopher: we both will end up inside a box someday. Happy thought of the day. Heheheh.

    Just feel free to drink whiskey and have a party when you put me in mine, OK?

  5. Great blog Scoble! I loved Yellowstone .. I visited in my younger days, it was a shame I wasn’t old enough to appreciate it’s beauty. I plan on going back once I have kids and let them experience it first hand. Yellowstone should be on everyones ‘to-do’ list.

  7. What a bunch of totally *HOT* geeks. Who’s boiling now? ME! Hubba hubba! I only wish I would have been one of the ones who got to see Scoble naked. I passed out before it got to that stage. And I am a gal who just hates to settle. Better luck next time. Note to self: Don’t drink John’s home brew.

    Hope to see everyone at Off the Grid 2.0 in Port Townsend, WA next summer, where we will *really* be off the grid as well as away from any septic system. Bring your own shovel!
