Day 18: The Yellowstone National Park

The Yellowstone N.P. Midway Basin.

Yellowstone National Park was real fun. Hundreds of geysers, bisons, elks, pelicans, never-ending fountains, waterfalls, deep gorges, hot springs, a mild sulfur smell, beautiful blue lakes and to-the-center-of-the-earth deep ultramarine color water filled caves. We have never been to a place like this. It was a new experience for us.
And the best of all: the colors. Deep blue, ultramarine, green, orange, yellow, all derived from heat-loving microorganisms. All colors were saturated, deep and so not-from-this-world that you wanted to touch them, play with them, just like a child would.

It was a moon-like experience.

That was one of the best days on our trip.
