geyser

Forces of Nature

When we visited Yellowstone National Park last summer I was amazed by the geothermal activity at this park. We saw many geysers and among them was this Jet Geyser erupting at the Lower Geyser Basin at Yellowstone.

The heat from the volcanic activity makes its presence known by heating ground water. This eruption is the result of super-heated water below-ground becoming trapped in channels leading to the surface and creating this thermal feature.

This picture is of West Thumb geyser at Yellowstone National park taken earlier this summer. The colors in the geyser depict various shades of Taupe. This is my contribution to One Word Photo Challenge by Jennifer.
