The Foundry – Yellowstone Thermal Spring

Purchase Image Download:

In Yellowstone National Park, turquoise water plunges deep into the earth in a thermal spring, cloaked in mist.

There are so many hot springs and geysers in Yellowstone that it’s hard to keep track of them all. I recall this one being named Crystal Geyser, but I can’t seem to confirm that online. I can’t even recall for sure whether it was even a geyser. There are certain iconic places that everyone remembers the name of: Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic, Mammoth Hot Springs. And while those places are incredibly beautiful, sometimes the quieter, more remote features were more special. This small, perhaps unnamed thermal spring (or geyser?) is a perfect example. The beautiful turquoise waters seemed to journey to the center of the earth, while the thick steam rising from the spring seemed to shroud it in mystery. And I had it all to myself.
