There is something "alive" about Dragon's Mouth Spring. It smells wretched. It rumbles and belches. Waves of muddy, boiling waters churn from the cave. Everything about this is the opposite of the peaceful hills surrounding this feature. Where else in the world can you see...More

This tiny cave is totally worth the quick pull off into the mud volcano parking lot. My 3 boys loved it and kept saying they could hear the dragon roaring. We stood and watched it for a good 5 minutes
