On our 2007 trip to Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota one of the stops was Yellowstone National Park. Some of the more picturesque spots in the park are the many thermal features scattered around the park. Some folk rush through the park stopping for only minutes at the less well known places and spending hours at the big attractions like Old Faithful. Those major attractions are worth a visit but if it is at the expense of spending some time at the less well known places then they’ve made a BIG mistake.

This shot of a Lakeside Spring was taken at the West Thumb Geyser Basin along the shores of Yellowstone Lake. As you can see, the springs are bright with color and very photogenic. This is a not to be missed spot. Always take your time when visiting and while the quantity of what you see may drop the quality will increase along with the memories.
