Color at Yellowstone

One of my favorite things about being in Yellowstone is an awareness of how active the earth is. All the steam vents, mud pots and geysers remind me that were skating on a thin crust over a huge fire pit.

That hot water and steam is what makes for a lot of surprising color at the park. Like this huge colorful pool, Grand Prismatic Pool. This is the pool sketched from the boardwalk.

But the more bird’s-eye-like view from the lookout point explains what it is about much more clearly. (and it only took a couple of minutes to sketch it and add notes to it.)

More surprising color, this time at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This is Inspiration Point, overlooking the gorge carved by the Yellowstone River.
