The name "Soda Butte" comes from a large, and largely dormant, hot spring cone that sits right next to the highway where Soda Butte Creek opens up into the Lamar Valley.

The drive from Roosevelt Junction to Cooke City is most impressive, and often missed. Some of the best wildlife opportunities are here. In addition this drive is also excellent for us landscape shooters. Highly recommended when in Yellowstone.

Happy Friday!

The Grand Prismatic Spring is one of the most colorful and captivating sights I've seen.

A couple other shots of this amazing place in comments.

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

I'm going to be away for the next week or so. Lost my stepmother. Sad days ahead.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Earth Day!

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
John Muir

So true! Here's an example of how Nature nourishes and rejuvenates me with Idaho's Sawtooth's mountains reflected in Little Redfish Lake.

We photographers have a special insight, respect and love for our planet. It's beauty moves us to explore it, know it and seek to capture it's wonders for others to enjoy and for posterity. This day we give thanks and recognition of the importance of the health and survival of our only home. We must cherish, protect and preserve this special biosphere. Not for us alone, but for future generations.

Thanks for any and all efforts you do to support this vital challenge.

Looking up from the highway at the terrace with Canary Spring overflowing the edge. This colorful spring is one of the largest and most impressive geothermal springs here. Can be seen from miles away.

So named for its bright yellow color, Canary owes its brilliance to sulfur dependent filamentous bacteria. The colors blend here in delicate tints on the creamy rock face.
