Grand Prismatic Spring


It was a steep hike that was off the beaten track to get to this amazing spot where you could get the overview of the Grand Prismatic Spring. I wasn't sure how high to hike to, but I kept going until I found this sweet spot with the absolute best unobstructed view of the spring. From this vantage point you could see the colors of the Grand Prismatic come to life in full bloom; something you can't quite get when you're at the spring itself. The myriad colors spreading out on the Spring is reminiscent of a painter who had tipped over bottles of paint, and the colors had somehow amalgamated purposefully on his canvas. So as I was perched atop the hill looking at that chromatic marvel, I thought to myself, this must be the pot of gold at the end of the Grand Prismatic rainbow.
