Yellowstone National Park Has Geysers

Today Ms. Ducky will show you pictures of some geysers at Yellowstone National Park.    According to National Geographic’s Guide to the National Parks, Yellowstone is a “geological smoking gun”.  Here is Ms. Ducky at Mud Geyser.

Humans do go to National Parks to see wild animals.   Be careful, Ms. Ducky

Of course, this is the Rocky Mountains, so let’s see a mountain lake.

Possibly the best known geyser in Yellowstone National Park is Old Faithful.

This geyser’s eruptions are predictable, so many humans gather here waiting for the next eruption.

A closer look

Let’s go to Mammoth Hot Springs Terrace for a different landscape.

The steaming terraces are made of travertine, calcium carbonate, which the hot water brings to the surface from beds of limestone.

A whole new look for geyser landscape.   Isn’t this interesting?   We love to see this stuff.

This is a dormant hot spring cone.   This is something new.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks have never seen anything like it.   This is great Ms. Ducky.  Thanks for sharing all these great pictures with us.   We will have from Ms. Ducky next time.  We still think you are very photogenic.
