Grand Pismatic Spring ~ Yellowstone National Park

Grand Prismatic Spring ~ Yellowstone National Park

If you've seen pictures of 

mineral spring

my guess is 

you've seen pictures of 

Grand Prismatic Springs.

Not only is it 

the biggest,

but also the most colorful.

The colors were amazing.

I had difficulty capturing them.

The temperatures that day

caused the steam to hover

over the water.

Occastionally a gust of wind would 

dispel  the steam

just long enough 

to sneak in a shot.  Simply beautiful.

Mud Volcanoes and Buffalo Closeups ~ Yellowstone National Park

Mud Volcanoes & Buffaloes ~ Yellowstone National Park

These buffaloes chose

the perfect place 

for a wallow.

Who could ask for

a better closeup?

I definitely wouldn't want 

to be this close

with no barriers and fences.

Wild flowers 

also put on 

quite a show for us 

as we walked

along the board walk.

Such a 




place to 





around every turn in the trail.

Waterfalls and Dragon  Mouth Springs ~ Mud Volcano ~Yellowstone National Park

Lewis Falls

Gibbon Falls

Our little jaunt 

through mud volcanos

got us some closeup

shots of buffaloes from the safety of the walkway.

Dragon Mouth Springs sparks the imagine 

to think what it would be like to find a real dragons lair.  Oh if only ...
