Yellowstone – Blend of Colors
The colorful landscape of Yellowstone National Park is unique and draws visitors from all over the world.
Yellowstone – Steam Rising
The landscape at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is populated by areas with volcanic activity causing flowing water to boil and create steam.
Heat and volcanic gases from slowly cooling magma rise and warm the dense salty water that occupies fractured rocks above the Yellowstone magma chamber. That brine, in turn, transfers its heat to overlying fresh groundwater which is recharged by rainfall and snowmelt from the surface.
Clouds in Yellowstone
With spectacular clouds in a blue sky, the drive through the dramatic Fall landscape in Yellowstone National Park was mesmerizing.
Yellowstone National Park is a nearly 3,500-sq.-mile wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot. Mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It’s also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.
As we were visiting in Fall, the landscape in Yellowstone was drier but the vistas were still beautiful.
