Hello Bill,

I know there as been some mud pots on the west side of Imperial for at least
the last decade.  I usually end up visiting the area late in the summer when
they are more like mud thumpers, not much mud, just a deep thumping noise
maker.  I seem to remember reading somewhere the mud pots have been there
for a lot longer than that.
