West Yellowstone, MT

We spent an extra night in West Yellowstone. It was a good lesson in mail service to small towns. Anyway, it gave us some extra time to see more of Yellowstone.

There's a very active area called Lower Geyser Basin. This shot shows a small bubbling pool in the foreground and the mountains to the West. The view in person is so spectacular this picture pales in comparison.

There were also a few thermal areas that had things called paint pots. Instead of heated water, they had what looked like warm clay or mud. They made a fabulous gurgling noise as they bubbled and churned.

Here's another hot pool that bubbled away with a great view in the distance.
