The was taken on board a coach travelling along Zion Mount Carmel Highway after passing the East Entrance and Zion Tunnel. The white peaks on the left is called the Beehives, while the taller one in the middle right is the Sentinel, which stands at 7157 feet. The glass of the window gave the image a bluish-grey tint. Against a clear blue sky, these mountain peaks looked austere, surreal and beautiful.

Zion National Park is an American national park located in southwestern Utah near the town of Springdale. A prominent feature of the 229-square-mile park is Zion Canyon, which is 15 miles long and up to 2,640 ft deep. The canyon walls are reddish and tan-colored Navajo Sandstone eroded by the North Fork of the Virgin River. The lowest point in the park is 3,666 ft at Coalpits Wash and the highest peak is 8,726 ft at Horse Ranch Mountain. Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave Desert regions, the park has a unique geography and a variety of life zones that allow for unusual plant and animal diversity. Numerous plant species as well as 289 species of birds, 75 mammals, and 32 reptiles inhabit the park's four life zones: desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest. Zion National Park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches. (Wikipedia)

These beautiful hot springs and pools are located in the Upper Geyser Basin, situated between the Grand Prismatic Pool and Morning Glory Pool, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA.

In the foreground is the Pinto Geothermal Spring, in the middle left is the Gem Pool. These two are partially connected. In the distant right is the Calthos Spring. They are reachable via a gravel trail, a few hundred metres from the Biscuit Basin Car Park. Took this image a few moments before noon. Lazy white clouds were casting interesting shadows on the distant hills.

It is a hot spring located in the Upper Geyser Basin. Its average temperature is around 69.8 °C (157.6 °F) and is 23 feet (7 m) deep. The pool was named by Mrs E. N. McGowan, wife of Assistant Park Superintendent, Charles McGowan in 1883. She called it "Convolutus", the Latin name for the morning glory flower, which the spring resembles.

The distinct colour of the pool is due to bacteria which inhabit the water. On a few rare occasions the Morning Glory Pool has erupted as a geyser, usually following an earthquake or other nearby seismic activity. Several entryways have been clogged due to objects being thrown in by tourists, reducing the hot water supply, and in turn altering the overall appearance of the pool.
