West Thumb Geyser Basin is my favorite of all the basins.
Then again, I have said that about every one we have visited.
This one is called Black Pool.
I truly believe this is my favorite pool. It appears to be infinitely deep, and if you stare long enough, you may just get sucked in.
This pool hides a surprise. It looks blue, but one formation inside is bright jade green. From an angle, you can see that the ground you are walking on is just a crust. The pool extends underground, seemingly without end.
On the drive home, there is a traffic jam and Hubs pulls off to see what the fuss is about.
A moose munches grass in a field surrounded by pines.
This is the first live moose I have ever seen and it strikes me as a caricature. What a gangly, odd looking creature!
