A thousand Yellowstone wonders are calling, ’Look up and down and round about you! John Muir – 1898

The temperatures were in the single digits on this cold, snowy January morning at West Thumb Geyser Basin, which is one of the smallest geyser basins in Yellowstone.

A incredibly scenic area along the shore of Yellowstone Lake, West Thumb only has a small amount of geyser activity. However, the basin more than makes up for it with its diversity. Despite its small size, it has paint/mud pots, hot springs, pools, lake shore geysers, and fumaroles. Fumaroles are small openings that release steam and other gasses.

You can see in the foreground the muddy, soupy waters inundating the paint pots. The white area beyond the tree line in the right hand side of the photograph is Yellowstone Lake.

    Thank you, Bianca. We visited in January 2006 and yes, we flew into Jackson Hole. Spent 10 wonderful days at the Tetons and Yellowstone. We toured in a van with those big snow tracks on it. Personal vehicles not allowed in the park in winter.
