Yellowstone - A Natural Wonder.

Earth's natural wonders remind us of the origins of our planet. As we go about our daily lives it's easy not to realise about the intense geothermal activity that is underway miles beneath our feet. I got to experience this at one of Earth's Natural wonders, The Yellowstone National Park. Centered over a Caldera, Yellowstone is considered the super volcano of the world and plays host to half of the worlds geothermal features. Yellowstone National Park, the first national park is known for it's thermal pools, geothermal springs and it's wildlife. The photo is from the Grand canyon of the Yellowstone - It was coined Yellowstone, due to the high content (note the yellowish tinge) of sulfur in the rocks of the canyons.
