Muddy McSwatchy

Dear Swatchy,

On another day, we went to Rincon de la Vieja. It’s another park, more than two hours away from Playa Grande. This park is famous because there are nine volcanoes in the park!

It was really hot, even hiking in the forest.

I needed lots of rest breaks.


One of the most interesting things in the park is the hot streams and mudpots.

The volcanic activity creates hot spots where water mixes with the dirt. Since it stays hot, the mud bubbles – just like boiling water.

The mud goes "bloop bloop" and splatters all over.

There are places you can go and actually soak in the hot springs, but Knittah's Dad said there wasn't time. At least he didn't let me get too muddy.

Love, McSwatchy
