03 Mar 14.  Walking distance from where the Little Firehole River cascades over Mystic falls on its way to join with the Firehole River in Yellowstone National Park sits Biscuit Basin. This group of geysers are not the big spectacular ones most folks come to see, but among the views to astonish you are several pools of steaming hot blue water. I imagine that they are a bit more spectacular in the summer when the air temps are much higher and there is less water vapor to occlude your view, but even with the mist rising above the pools, sometimes obliterating them for minutes at a time, they are worth waiting for a breeze to pass over and clear the area even if for just a brief moment. And the trade off of mist for vast crowds of people is well worth it for me. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/500 sec @ f /10.
