Living Color


Hot pools sparkle with color on a mostly cloudless autumn day. Blue pools ringed with living color in the form of thermophilic bacteria mix with a bluebird sky at Biscuit Basin.


At Norris the color palette is extensive and the views expansive.


Many species of Bacteria form the colorful mats found in many geyser basins.  Thriving in temperatures that range from a comfortable 30C all the way up to 80C and providing a visual confirmation that life is indeed varied and diverse.


Afternoon clouds rolled though and dotted the sky adding another layer of color to the wonderful landscape below.

    1. Good morning and thanks. We do live in such a wonderful and beautiful, world threatened by the slow march of what we call development, so we feel it important to share that beauty and perhaps help save a slice for all that live on the planet before it is gone.
