Grand Prismatic Hot Spring in Yellowstone

Grand Prismatic Hot Spring in Yellowstone

We hiked behind the Grand Prismatic Spring…to try and climb up to get an elevated view of this colorful and famous hot spring.

These are some of the photos of our journey to hike up.

Well worth our STRENUOUS hike…smile…good memories.

The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world,[3] after Frying Pan Lake in New Zealand and Boiling Lake in Dominica. It is located in the Midway Geyser Basin.

Grand Prismatic Spring was noted by geologists working in the Hayden Geological Survey of 1871, and named by them for its striking coloration. Its colors match the rainbow dispersion of white light by an optical prism: red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.[4]
