Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park is a mosaic of ever-changing landscapes — from thick forest, to windswept alpine plains, to desert-like sagebrush, to boiling geysers, to thermal hot springs, to roaring rivers and to colourful canyons.

    It’s a definite must-see – if only for the hot springs. Go early, it can get crowded!

    Thanks for some great photos of Yellowstone NP. We are planning to visit there for a family holiday and I will definitely be putting the Mammoth Campsite on our list of places to stay… Soaking in the natural hot river looks fabulous!

    Hi, thanks for the comment. I actually have a different angle of that same geyser showing its interpretive sign and reads: “Spasm Geyser.” Maybe the two just look a lot alike?

  • Matt Sep 28, 2012 Link

    Excellent photos, sir. But just a quick note that the geyser you have listed as Spasm is actually Clepsydra Geyser.
