Geothermal Textures

One of the most intriguingly fascinating experiences of my life happened during my trip to the Yellowstone National Park. This National Park is a natural wonder that has a lot to offer- a live, visual Geography class and a natural Chemistry lab experience! These pictures are a proof of few of the phenomenons I’ve never seen or experienced!

These photographs were captured at the Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone. The terrace formation was a result of hot water springs cooling down and depositing calcium carbonate from thousands of years. The formations which are an outcome of a geothermal phenomenon have resulted in these unique and intriguing natural textures. A closer look at the texture resembles deposits of limestone.

  1. Awesome place and wonderful photos. How did it feel to be walking round an overdue caldera??

    So much beauty and so much power lying underground. Nature provides so much mystery and I think its brilliant to just step back and look at it sometime; just like you have.

    Love it πŸ™‚
