Illustration for article titled ​The Roads In Yellowstone Are Freaking Melting

If you and the fam had plans to visit Yellowstone this year, rethink your itinerary. There's so much underground heat that the roads are melting underneath people's cars.


A 3.3-mile stretch of road had to be closed because of geological shifts that are causing massive amounts of heat to come to the surface. The result is sunken, hot asphalt on roads and hiking trails that, according to AP, poses the "danger of stepping through a solid-looking crust of soil into boiling-hot water".

Damn. Then again, the road is called Firehole Lake Drive, so we should've seen this coming.
