Yellowstone National Park is America\’s first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, it is home to a variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. There are Old Faithful and a collection of the world\’s most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
Grand Teton Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains in North America. A north-south range, it is on the Wyoming side of the state's border with Idaho, just south of Yellowstone National Park.

  • or “dry geysers”, are holes in the ground that release water vapor and other gases. The smell of rotten eggs comes from the sulfuric acid in the steam.
    Fumaroles
    also called thermal pool, contained an array of colors depending upon water temperature,
    mineral or algae content, and absorption of light.
    Hot Spring
    are hot springs that periodically erupt, shooting scalding water and steam into the air.

    Geysers
    hot water mixes with clay and other minerals. In the spring and fall the pots are thin and soupy; the mud bubbles and boils. In late summer they thicken and have been known to hurl hot mud 10 to 15 feet high.

    Thermal Features in Yellowstone National Park
  • Fast Facts of Daisy Geyser
    Daisy Geyser is part of interconnected group of geyser and hot springs
    Underground cracks and fissures allow water and heat to circulate between them
    Daisy Geyser erupts to heights of 75 feet or more
    On average, the duration of Daisy Geyser’s eruptions are 3 to 5 minutes
  • Daisy Geyser
  • Eruption of Beehive Geyser
  • Riverside Geyser
    This isolated spring is one of the most regular geysers in Yellowstone. Its 75 foot (23 m) eruption lasts about half an hour and is followed by an interval between 5.5 to 7 hours.
  • Grand Geyser
    haha….
    eruption of another geyser,
    Grand Geyser
  • Castle Geyser
    A steam phase follows
    which lasts
    another 10 minutes
    The watershoots
    between 60-90 feet
    blasts for about 15 minutes
    The cycle repeat.
    Total duration of eruption
    was about 50 minutes
  • Castle
    Geyser
    We waited 2 hours
    in the morning
    ‘no eruption’ occur
    but we refused
    to give up….
    waited 45 min
    in evening
    the same day
    and our patience
    paid off.
    This Cone Geyser
    erupted for
    a duration of
    45 minutes
    And
    at a certain angle
    with the
    evening Sunlight
    we saw the
    ‘’ rainbow ‘’

    2/3 times the average height of Old Faithful and steam roars
    24 hours after. Howver steamboat’s major eruption occur

  • At 122-140oF Whirligig’s run off channel is hot enough to burn you. Thermophiles living here use iron as energy. These chemical users are called “Chemotrophs”
    Whirligig
    Thermophiles algae, including Cyanidium, inhibit the green channel. They use light as energy (photosynthesize). These “Phototrophs” live where temperature range from 100-103oF
