Spring water and nostalgia

We got quite some opportunities to GO PLACES (this is not a Toyota ad 🙂 ), years before our son was born. We still have opportunities but baggages become larger than before when there is a kid. It was during the smaller baggage days. 🙂 One such memory lane was created when we visited Yellowstone in some deep breath past. We were looking at our old albums and found the pictures on today’s post that were taken a while back when a small carry-on was enough for a long distance travel of the family. 🙂 These pictures were taken in the Grand Prismatic Spring area of Yellowstone National Park.

Grand Prismatic Spring is the third largest hot spring in the world. It sits on a bed of colored volcanic rocks with high silica content known as rhyolitic rock. Magma inside earth warms the water (H2O). The colorful rocks are dissolved by the magma-heat and brought to the surface of the spring. Of course, the geoscience behind the spring is amazing but for us, the pictures bring nostalgia. 🙂
