2016—Norris Geyser Basin

Moose saved the best for last.  On Friday,  we visited the Norris Geyser Basin.   It is impossible to describe the haunting beauty that the gorgeous snow covered views deep within our first national park offer in winter.  The  steamy chemical stew from the geysers, hot springs, fumaroles and mud pots blankets the trees surrounding these features with snowy shrouds and creates a look like no other place on earth.  The effect is otherworldly.

  1. That one looking down into the pool certainly makes you think you’re peering down into another world..There is a sense of eternity in the ongoing annual conflict between hot springs & cold snow. A great set.

  2. Wonderful! Glad you got to see the geysers in winter- what a beautiful scene! Love the contrast of snow and steam and the bubbling brew- beautifully captured. And the sunburst in the last photo!
