It’s a little sad how many hats get blown out onto the geysers basins in Yellowstone. I am not sure why they haven’t been banned yet. This lonely hat was at Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic spring. . . #GrandPrismaticSpring #GrandPrismatic #LostHat #WindblownHat #Yellowstone #YellowstoneNationalPark #HotSprings #GeothermalFeatures #GetOutside #NationalParks #ConservationIsKey #KeepAmericaBeautiful #ProtectOurParks
I'm excited to announce that I am now a contributor for a new photography blog, @slowphotographymovement. It's a photography blog focused on slowing down and the creative process. Both of these concepts are near and dear to my heart, so I'm excited to contribute some of my stories and experiences talking about this process. There are other talented photographers and storytellers on there as well, so hop over and check them out! My first written piece is posted, and it's about how I walked away with lessons learned from Yellowstone National Park. Those moments helped me form a new appreciation for abstract photography, simply by slowing down and taking in my surroundings. This image is from my natural abstract Yellowstone Series, taken from that trip. "Sparkling" Green bacteria and moving water create a painterly effect. #wyoming #naturalwyoming #jacksonhole #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #abstractphotography #westyellowstone #geothermalfeatures #hotsprings #wyomingnaturepics #onlyinwyoming #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #slowphotographymovement #naturelandscape #wildvisuals #westernstates #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #inspiring_photography_admired #exploretocreate #nikond500 #creativephotography #followyourfeet #natures_marvels #wonderful_places #naturecaptures #photographerlife #photographerfocus #landscape_lovers
Colors of Yellowstone - Detail of a green runoff channel of Whirligig geyser in the Norris Geyser Basin. The green color arises from thermophilic algae present in the runoff. Photo 2 from a boardwalk sign near the geyser provides more interesting facts about thermophiles. #yellowstonehotsprings #norrisgeyserbasin #geothermalfeatures #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #macro #macrophotography #macro_vision #macro_captures #macro_brilliance #canonphotography #canon100mm #canon100mmmacro
It goes by many names... Grand Phantasm... The Prism Well... Rainbow Lake... "The big, colorful Geyser with the, you know, the colors"... That Thing That's On The Bag In The Park Store *gestures wildly*... but there is only one, the largest hot spring in North America and the most aesthetic in the world, the Grand Prismatic Spring. No, you can't swim there. If you want to swim in colorful hot water, buy a bath bomb like everyone else.
The earth seems to be bubbling. #yellowstonenationalpark #geothermalfeatures
Colors of Yellowstone - Bacterial mats lining the Black Pool runoff channels leading into Yellowstone Lake. Yellowstone’s bacterial mats are the subject of numerous scientific studies. It is believed that thermophilic bacteria are similar to the first life forms, cyanobacteria, capable of photosynthesis. https://home.nps.gov/yell/learn/upload/RI_2017_Ch5-Thermophiles.pdf https://news.stanford.edu/news/2006/february8/yellowstone-020806.html #yellowstonehotsprings #thermophiles #bacterialmats #westthumbgeyserbasin #geothermalfeatures #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #canon_camera #canonrebel
A hole in the earth in Nevada’s Monitor Valley. The water is close to 200 degrees so no bathing, sadly. #dianaspunchbowl #devilscauldron #geothermalfeatures #travertine
Colors of Yellowstone - Crusted edge and thermophilic bacterial mats of Black Pool Hot Sping in the West Thumb Geyser Basin. Unlike its name would suggest, Black Pool is is a blue to turquoise coloured pool bordered by orange and yellow mats formed by heat-loving bacteria and greyish-white geyserite, a siliceous sinter deposit. #yellowstonehotsprings #thermophiles #bacterialmats #westthumbgeyserbasin #geothermalfeatures #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstoneforever #macro #macrophotography #macro_vision #macro_captures #macro_brilliance #canonphotography #canon100mm #canon100mmmacro
Yellowstone National Park is famous for its unusual geothermal activity. It gathers several geysers, including the Old Faithful which you can see in this photo and which is the tallest one: its eruption height can reach 185 ft (56m)! Geysers are formed by a combination of water, heat and pressure: first, groundwaters are trapped in underground channels and reservoirs; then, because of their proximity to the magma chamber, these groundwaters are heated to temperatures above their boiling point, which increases the pressure and induce the eruption of the geyser. Be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel (link in the bio), we will post a full video of Yellowstone pretty soon. . . #Yellowstone #YellowstoneNationalPark #Wyoming #OldFaithful #OldFaithfulGeyser #geyser #geysers #geothermalactivity #geothermal #geothermalfeatures #wyomingphotography #explorewyoming #visitwyoming #wyomingtourism #wyominglandscape #landscapephotography #naturephotography #nature #earthfocus #earthpix #earthescope #discoverearth #unusualplaces #science #scientific
We camped in Yellowstone National Park last Saturday and we had the opportunity to watch the sunrise from the Mammoth Terraces in the North of the park. These terraces made of limestone are a result of the presence of acid waters that reacted with the CaCO3 contained in the ground. . . #Yellowstone #YellowstoneNationalPark #Wyoming #MammothHotSprings #landscapephotography #landscape #wyominglandscape #wyomingphotography #visitwyoming #explorewyoming #wyomingtourism #findyourpark #nature #naturephotography #geology #geologicalfeature #geothermalfeatures #limestone #minerals #science #sunrise #sunrisephotography #scientific #earthescope #earthpix #earthfocus #discoverearth #geothermalactivity #unusualplaces
“Double double. Toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble. “ ——————————————————————-Artist paint pot
I know it appears these colors have been altered or enhanced with fake filters, but I assure you they are real. The green in the Emerald Pool located in the Black Sand Basin at Yellowstone is created from yellow thermophilic bacteria.  A thermophile is a living organism that thrives in high temperatures. The color is generated from photosynthetic pigments. The orange and brown around the edges is due to idiots throwing items into the pool affecting the growth of the bacteria. Hopefully people now know not to do this, but I doubt it. #emeraldpool #blacksandgeyserbasin #yellowstone #yellowstonegeyser #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #geyser #ynp #hotsprings #geothermal #geothermalpool #fumaroles #geothermalfeatures #whatsoutsideourdoor #yellowstoneforever #wyoming #FindYourPark #Parks101 #preservation #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks
Here's another Yellowstone secret. You can park in the Fairy Falls parking area and climb a steep trail (and it is steep!) to view Grand Prismatic Spring at it's fullest, which is not possible at the ground level. It is truly breathtaking. #grandprismaticspring #midwaygeyserbasin #yellowstone #yellowstonegeyser #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #geyser #ynp #hotsprings #geothermal #geothermalpool #fumaroles #geothermalfeatures #fulltimervlife #whatsoutsideourdoor #fulltimerv #yellowstoneforever #wyoming #FindYourPark #Parks101 #preservation #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks
This is Goggle Springs located on Geyser Hill. Our ranger said she didn't know why it was named Goggles. Maybe from the 1930's when they drove their Model Ts up to the edge requiring them to wear goggles? Back then the assumption was that the spring waters were healthy. Now we know many are filled with heavy metals including arsenic! #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #geyser #ynp #hotsprings #geothermal #geothermalpool #fumaroles #geothermalfeatures #goparks #yellowstoneforever #wyoming #FindYourPark #Parks101 #preservation #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #fulltimervlife #fulltimervliving
Old faithful ✅ 📸 @ph12390
It is easy to understand why this geyser was named Beehive in 1871 by the Washburn–Langford–Doane Expedition. One of the members of the expedition wrote articles for the Helena, Montana newspaper advocating setting aside Yellowstone as a National Park. Congress soon agreed leading President Ulysses S. Grant to sign Yellowstone as our first National Park! #FindYourPark #Parks101 #preservation #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors #goparks #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #geyser #ynp #hotsprings #geothermal #geothermalpool #fumaroles #geothermalfeatures #yellowstonegeyser #yellowstoneforever #wyoming
In the early days of the park. Yellowstone earned the nickname Wonderland, it’s easy to see why -Mammoth hot springs
It's amazing how deceptive these geysers look. The blues are the bluest. The yellows shimmer in amber, curry, gold. The bubbles and steam look so inviting, so soothing. But they are deadly. Surprising the blues are the hottest at 198 degrees F! The yellows are the second hottest. And yes, people have fallen in because they get off the boardwalk not realizing the ground is not stable or worst, they trip and fall into them off the boardwalk. Amazing you see kids hanging over the rails, horse playing, running at full speed while the parents do nothing. Very scary! #geyser #depressiongeyser #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #geyser #ynp #hotsprings #geothermal #geothermalpool #geothermalfeatures #fumaroles #yellowstoneforever #wyoming #whatsoutsideourdoor #FindYourPark #Parks101 #preservation #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps100 #nationalparkservice #thegreatoutdoors

Would you believe I didn't visit Fountain Paint Pot once last year? Every time I drove by, it looked too crowded and I'd tell myself: "next time" but today I wanted a laid-back Sunday in the park (I had Tuesday-Wednesday off this week) and so I gave it a go. It's a nice little geyser basin with an example of every one of the four main thermal features in Yellowstone: hot springs, geysers, mud pots, and fumaroles (steam vents). I also caught part of Great Fountain Geyser's eruption and got to see White Dome Geyser go off (pic 3). Overall, a nice weekend ender. I was reminded on Firehole Lake Drive why I hate visiting geyser basins though, since I had to yell at three grown adults who were walking on a thermal area with an obvious sign saying not to do so in their direct field of view. People, if the crust beneath your feet is literally STEAMING, maybe you should heed the signs that are posted everywhere? Just... maybe? I hate people, sometimes. Not you guys though, you guys are cool. #geologyrocks #geysergazing #lowergeyserbasin #fountainpaintpot #parkrangerlife #yellowstonenationalpark
Hot spring in Yellowstone. The colours are caused by bacteria, different colours of bacteria survive at different temperatures, hence the spectacular colours at the pools and springs #geothermalfeatures #thermalfeature #hotspring #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nps #findyourpark #bluepool #biscuitbasin
Day 7 Stats - Yellowstone NP: Spent the day in Geyser Country...hiked 7 miles, watched three geysers erupt, and saw a variety of geothermal features including the Grand Prismatic Spring. #oldfaithful #grandprismaticspring #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #geothermalfeatures #AmericatheBeautiful #lovetohike #64daysofsummer #dontwasteone #summervacay2018 #GarzonAdventures #itsawanderfullife @k9cop90
Old Faithful is the world’s best known and the most predictable geyser, hence the name ‘Old faithful’. It erupts every 35 to 120 minutes for 90 to 300 seconds and shoots up 90 to 180 feet in the air. The height,duration and intensity of each eruption determines the time for the next eruption. There is even a weblink to check its eruption schedule: https://geysertimes.org/geyser.php?id=Old+Faithful #geysereruptions #oldfaithful #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #geothermalactivity #geothermalfeatures #sonyalphain #sonyalphain
Super excited to finally see the glorious Great Fountain Geyser yesterday dancing in sunlight. The long interval between eruptions and long range of prediction time make this geyser hard to catch. I arrived just in time to see its wonderful performance that lasted for almost 30 minutes! #greatfountaingeyser #lowergeyserbasin #yellowstonenationalpark #wyoming #geyser #geysereruption #naturalwonder #optoutside #colorful #geothermalfeatures
Black pool restoring its transparency and turquoise color from the winter snow melt. This hot spring has remained super heated since 1991, prior to which had a dark green, almost black color, hence its name.

Grand Prismatic Springs was number one on my list to see at #yellowstonenationalpark and it was even more vivid than I thought was possible. I LOVED all the gorgeous colors.
It’s National Park week....no entrance fees at national parks this week. So you can stop by for a quick visit! #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #nationalpark #green #trees #lakes #waterfalls #geothermalfeatures #hotsprings #geysers #clouds #animals #allinoneplace #nature #explorenature #nationalparkweek
That’s a wrap! Our 2017-2018 season of @wildilfeexpeditions snow coach tours wrapped up last week. Thanks to all the participants who joined us to experience this special place during our favorite time of year. Also, thanks to all of the guides, reservationists, and mechanics who put in some long hours to make these trips happen. Wildlife Expeditions Yellowstone trips will resume in May when the roads have reopened. In the meantime, we’re still offering wildlife trips in Grand Teton National Park. Spring wolf and bear trips will start at the end of April.

See you tomorrow Morning Glory Pool (this pic is from three years ago)!! It has been a while Old Filthy, glad to see fate has ordained our reunion :) Snowmobiling for the first time in the world's first national park tomorrow! #oldfaithful #oldfilthy #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstone #nationalparks #geothermalfeatures #morningglorypool @yellowstonenps
