Yellowstone hot spot. Geology theory says that there is a hot spot coming from deep in the Earth beneath Yellowstone National Park. This hot spot causes the hot springs and geysers for which the Park is known.
There have been catastrophic eruptions at Yellowstone, that, if repeated, could wipe out a lot of us in the Rocky Mountain area.
