Green Dragon Spring is located in the Back Basin at Norris Geyser Basin. Some of the photos and comments are confusing this Spring with Dragon's Mouth Spring in the Mud Volcano Area.

We checked this out on our way out of the park. If you onlybhave a day and want to see the lake and some hot pots, this is the place to go. Easy walk. And to hear the dragon was neat.

If you can handle the smell, the spring shows a variety of colors that are not usually seen in nature. And to know that this spring has been here for hundreds of years, if not thousands, looking almost the same way is amazing.

if you are in Norris Geyser basin and take the back basin hike you will see this crusty spring that boils. It is interesting but not worth going out of your way to see. I can't give any feature this geologically unique in the world...More
