Geysers are natural hot-water fountains. Yellowstone has nearly three hundred geysers, more than anywhere else on Earth.
Norris Geyser Basin is the hottest, oldest, and most dynamic of Yellowstone’s thermal areas.
Sometimes it felt like we were in outer space or on a Science Fiction set walking about this huge basin with such a strange variety of areas to see.
Rainbow Colors, hissing steam, and pungent odors combine to create an experience unique in Yellowstone. If you are overly sensitive to the smell of Sulphur or your sense of smell is intense this might not be the best environment for you. There were a few younger kids hurrying away holding their noses.
The features in the basin change daily, with frequent disturbances from seismic activity and water fluctuations.
This post is a continuation of my documentation of our trip to Yellowstone. I still have posts on Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Yellowstone Lake, and the Bison…oh my. So stay tuned.
We had a great gathering yesterday (4th of July) with 14 of us. It was chilly but everyone persevered out on the deck. I haven’t uploaded the photos I took. I’m cleaning up and recuperating this morning and then I’ll be headed out tonight for a friendly game against our Seattle Sounders and West Ham United from Jolly Old England.
How were your celebrations of the 4th or Canada Day?
