Land of Smoke and Fire: Yellowstone National Park

Just before the first snowfall, our visit to Yellowstone National Park demonstrated the sharp contrast between the hot steam from the thermal springs and vents and the cold late autumn air. The reflection of the sun in the pool gives and unworldly aspect to this view of the Norris Geyser Basin. The temperature was close to freezing and every hot spring had a visible plume. Most of Park facilities were closed for the season so we had an uncrowded view of the geysers and pools.
