Morning Glory

This is one of the many features around the area of Old Faithful; a pool called Morning Glory. It’s color comes from sulfur and bacteria in the water and in fact has even erupted a few times. It’s a very deep vent that’s color is amazing, but whose color is fading. Due to selfish, ignorant, thoughtless tourists over the years throwing trash into the vent, the vents have become clogged, blocking the heat, and forever changing the precious treasure. It’s still beautiful, but it’s sad at the same time…
