I was aware of the Grand Prismatic Spring from reading photography forums and was really excited to see it. Yesterday we visited the site but Holy Moly was it crowded. Worth it though as it’s the most beautiful site in the park IMHO.
Unfortunately, the walkway was on the downwind side so all shots were through the steam. Also, the classic shot is from the hill in the background that’s not easily accessible. Not happy with this result but it is what it is.
This adjoining spring is called the Turquoise Pool and is equally beautiful.
