Excelsior Geyser and Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone

Detailed Description

Aerial view of Excelsior Geyser (in the foreground) and Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone’s Midway Geyser Basin. The colors around the thermal features are locations of different thermophile communities. These thermophiles fix carbon both, from the atmosphere and from the hot water.
