Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

It's a wonderland. Old Faithful and the majority of the world's geysers are preserved here. They are the main reason the park was established in 1872 as America's first national park an idea that spread worldwide. A mountain wildland, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of bison and elk, the park is the core of one of the last, nearly intact, natural ecosystems in the Earth s temperate zone.

It was cloudy all afternoon at the Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park.

Just as Castle Geyser began erupting, clouds parted and sunlight lit the geyser cone and rising plume of super heated water and steam.

Making another Yellowstone memory.

Roaring Mountain

Roaring Mountain

This hissing mountain of steam is the only thing like it in Yellowstone. Roaring Mountain is a barren hillside of thermal features called fumaroles. It got its name from the loud hissing and roaring that it makes due to thermal activity and could be heard miles away in the days of its discovery. Nowadays the roaring has quieted a bit but can still be heard if you listen carefully. There are no trees on the most active parts of Roaring Mountain due to the intense heat and gases that emminate through its vents. Its slopes are inhospitable to all but the toughest microorgansims. This unique mountain is in one of the hottest parts of Yellowstone National Park.

So many wonders in the special ecosystem.

Thanks your visit and for any comments, faves or suggestions.
