Yellowstone Part 7

June 21

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!
