geothermals

We didn’t just look at animals on our trip through Yellowstone, we also stopped at some of the amazing geothermal features in the park. Because Yellowstone is a dormant volcano, there are a lot of places for gasses and minerals from deep in the earth to escape. These create geothermal features around the landscape, including the most famous, Old Faithful. Geysers, mud pots and thermal springs can be found throughout the park. Here is one that we stopped at. In winter, they become almost eerie in their beauty.

I was able to get away from the group in order to take these pix. It was my first chance to be “alone” amongst the landscape. It felt wonderful.
