To the best of my knowledge, the mud pots at Imperial have always been there
- Allen and Day mention them, so they've been around since the late 20s.

Subject: [Geysers] Q regarding mud pots at Imperial Geyser

I feel the need to apologize twice for this inquiry.  First, I should have
made it six weeks ago, when we were at the park and could act on any
followup.  Second, I may be the only person on the mailing list who doesn't
already know the answer!  But anyway:

When my wife and I hiked out to Imperial Geyser (OK, *New* Imperial Geyser)
last month, we noticed what looked like the beginnings of a mud pot very
near the trail on the "upstream" side of the old Imperial crater.  I've
never seen anything about mud pots at or near Imperial in any of the sources
I've consulted (certainly not an exhaustive list) and have been wondering
whether this is a new feature.  Anybody got anything on it?  I can post a
not-very-impressive photograph if there's interest.
