Upper Terraces, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. These are silica terraces. Subterranean water in the heated bedrock above the Yellowstone caldera dissolves silica and other minerals in the rock. The hot water bubbles up to the surface where it cools and deposits the silica in pools and terraces. The colors are thought to reflect the heat loving bacteria living in the pools, but science has shown that some of it is related to the type of minerals dissolved in the water. Whatever the cause, the colors of the terraces change over months to years. #upperterrace #mammothhotsprings #yellowstonenp #yellowstone #ynp #nps #geothermalsprings #geothermal #wyoming #naturespaintings #looksfaketome
