Grand Prismatic Spring (Yellowstone)

This is my last Yellowstone post; it says something about the place that I'm still posting photographs a year after my vacation there. This is the Grand Prismatic Spring, which is a huge expanse of multicolored, steaming, other-worldly vistas.
The boardwalks take you right above this remarkable geothermal feature so the views are incredible anywhere you turn.
At times the sulfur-tinged steam completely covers you.
All this water flows into the Firehole River.
This is my Scenic Sunday post for the week, and I don't think it gets much more scenic than this. I think it also works as a Water Wednesday post. I'm a little sad that there are no more Yellowstone photos to post, but you can revisit them at any time all by clicking on the Yellowstone tag below, or on the right column of the blog.

  1. These photos are incredible. You certainly have the knack for bringing the viewer right into the action. I can feel the steam (and smell the sulfur!).
