Grand Prismatic Spring (left) and Excelsior Geyser (right).  Grand Prismatic Spring displays a stunning rainbow of colors created by species of thermophilac (heat-loving) bacteria that thrive in narrow temperature ranges.  The blue water in the center is too hot to support any bacterial life, while the outer orange rings are the coolest water.  Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest spring in the United States and the third-largest in the world.  Midway Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming Old Faithful geyser, sunrise.

After winter flooding, the salt on the Badwater Basin playa dries into geometric polygonal shapes, Death Valley National Park, California Morning Glory Pool has long been considered a must-see site in Yellowstone.  At one time a road brought visitors to its brink.  Over the years they threw coins, bottles and trash in the pool, reducing its flow and causing the red and orange bacteria to creep in from its edge, replacing the blue bacteria that thrive in the hotter water at the center of the pool.  The pool is now accessed only by a foot path.  Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming Crested Pool is a blue, superheated pool.  Unfortunately, it has claimed a life.  It reaches a overflowing boiling state every few minutes, then subsides a bit before building to a boil and overflow again.
