I never said it would be five consecutive days. My life has been filled with all the wonders of freshman year, from fire-spinning to five-hour physics problem sets.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. This post is all about Montana and the glorious geothermal activity that I had the pleasure to behold there!
There wasn’t a lot of action at Mammoth Hot Springs, but the color is still undeniably beautiful:
The steam from a nearby geothermal rolled onto the road near sunset and created this cool effect:
Appropriately named “Dragon’s Mouth,” at the Artist Paint Pots:
The Grand Prismatic Spring was the most impressive feature, and the view from above was glorious:
Closer to the Prismatic, the deep blue color was preserved:
But it was hard to get the same idea of the shape and scale of it:
The Prismatic also had some vericose veins. I don’t know how these formed, but they’re very cool close up:
And of course, the cliched photo of Old Faithful to top it all off:
Stay tuned for more soon (it won’t be another month this time, I promise)!
