USA/WY: Yellowstone NP – West Thumb Geyser Basin

Another interesting geyser Basin in Yellowstone is the West Thumb Geyser Basin. It’s actually different from all the other geyser basins since it’s not part of the Yellowstone caldera but rather he it’s own heat source much closer to the surface beneath the Yellowstone Lake. The basin is located right on the shores of the lake and some of the the geysers are actually submerged.
