Grand Prismatic Spring 1

 icon-camera-retro Amazing Colorful World / Yellowstone National Park

I will show you 1 of the most amazing (famous) points to visit in Yellowstone National Park. That is the super big ultra colorful geysers point. There are many kinds of colors geysers and some of them are making fountains & spray into the sky with steam even just right now. If you have a plan to come to Yellowstone National Park, you should visit this place indeed. I hope the photos will take you into the colorful world little bit.

~ Kosuke and I packed everything except some pickles, paprikas and butter in the fridge (we forgot to bring them!), and checked out the wooden hostel “The Historic Madison Hotel Motel” at West Yellowstone. I really really liked the free super sweet late at the hostel, so I got 2 cups of it, and headed into Yellowstone National Park for the last visit. We finally came to the point of Google always showed me this place’s photos when I searched about Yellowstone. It took some time to recognize the one, because it was much bigger than I imagined.

Birds’ Tree House 1

~ We drove for about 1 hour from the town “West Yellowstone”, and passing some bisons just like the usual in the great nature, we were arrived at this place. The outside was so hot, it should be dry air tho, it was so humid by the steam. I’ve got my camera stuffs and water bottle. We started to walk on the trail.

Birds’ Tree House 2

~ Just before the amazing colorful sight some birds with the pretty tree house were showed up us. Yes it is such a great famous sightseeing point, many people were there, and were trying to take photos of them by super expensive camera stuffs with tripods.

Some of them make huge splash with a lot of steam into the sky. We don’t know when we can see the moment. If you are lucky you can see it, and it will be started suddenly unexpectedly.

 icon-exclamation-triangle Expect the unexpected. You might get the hot splash. It really doesn’t happen much, but just remember it for the unexpected.

Huge Orange

 icon-camera Google often shows us the picture of this place “Grand Prismatic Spring” about how cool Yellowstone National Park is. There is a trail for the wonderful colorful sight as for free. You are going to be impressed by the mystery huge world in the steam. Don’t forget to bring your water! it’s so hot sunlight & steam everywhere. Also I recommend you to bring a raincoat in your backpack, the weather is really changed a lot, like it is so nice weather, then suddenly it rains, and next in 30 mins it hails, and it will be nice weather again in 30 mins.

Steam From Yellow

Bison’s Footprints On Grand Prismatic Spring

~ The footprints of a bison were looked very myth like. It’s so hot water. Only the wild animal could cross the water without a bridge.


IMGP3491

Nature Magic

~ blue sky, green mountain with white snow, blue steam, green and yellow horizon, orange and brown geyser that reflect the things as a big mirror…
There is nowhere like this place on the Earth, only here is. There are so many places that only exist “there”. That’s why we travelers travel around and try to see them by their eyes.
