As hot mineral water seeps out of the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park it leaves tiny layers of minerals. The heat of the water provides an ideal environment for bacteria, which grow in colorful mats over the wavy mineral deposits. The end result is an amazing display of color and texture.

It would kinda look like the set of a sci fi movie, except for the tree line 🙂 Very interesting look to the spring!
It is a rather “other worldly” place to visit.
This is super cool!
Thank you. The Grand Prismatic Spring is something to see!
