Midway Geyser Basin


The Midway Geyser Basin at Yellowstone National Park may be small compared to the other thermal area in the park, but the effect is bigger because of the the most photographed, powerful thermal hot spring, the Grand Prismatic spring. The spectacular Grand Prismatic spring is the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world. Its rainbow colored waters are what really make it so special. The cerulean hue in the center of the pool is pretty astonishing and the bright red, yellow and orange surround the edges make it even more spectacular. Expect crowd and try to visit around 10 am during the cooler months to avoid fog in the morning.

These photos are from our two day trip to Yellowstone National park in late August 2012.
