We continue exploring the Upper Geyser Basin at Yellowstone National Park.

I'm glad we got up so early- It's wonderful to beat the crowds and have the place more or less to ourselves in July!


Ear spring-


Off in the distance Old Faithful erupts again-




So many hotsprings I lose track of their names-


Liberty Pool-

We had the good fortune of seeing Grand Geyser erupt in spectacular fashion-


Grand Geyser is the tallest predictable geyser in the world but eruptions only occur once every 7 - 15 hours so we were quite lucky to see it blow! It is a classic fountain geyser and erupts from a large pool with powerful bursts rather than a steady column like Old Faithful. We hustled over for a closer look-

The Grand Geyser eruption finally ran out of steam


Not sure where Grand Geyser ends and Turban Geyser begins-


Nearby Belgian Pool-


Continuing towards the north section of the Upper Geyser Basin-


Economic Geyser-


Wave Spring-


Beauty Pool-




Chromatic Pool-


Where do these amazing colors come from?


Onwards!!
