Crackling Lake

Yesterday we explored the thermal world of Yellowstone which was the main reason for making almost 3,500 square miles of territory our first national park. (As an aside, the bill making it a park was passed in 1872 with the understanding that no one would ask for any money to manage it!)

Anyway, we didn't see all of the 10,000 thermal features and more than 300 geysers, but we saw incredible colors and marveled at the amazing thermal energy that surrounded us.

One of my favorite places was Crackling Lake, which sounded like it's name. Here's a 30-second video to give you a tiny taste.

Here are just a few more images from the day ...
