Travel themes – Hot

Ailsa’s feeling kind of chilly right now (and so am I), so she’s asking for pictures of something hot to warm her up! Here’s my assortment –

but this lizard thought it was just right.

just under the surface.

  1. Lovely Pictures!

    I especially loved the second picture. I have never been to Yellowstone park to see this phenomenon, but I hope to someday.

  2. Was the Yellowstone one taken in summer? In winter I assume the geyser things are still just as hot?

    • The Yellowstone picture was taken in August 2003. I’m sure the geysers keep steaming away all year – volcanoes are like that – but the park is only partly open then. All but the northern entrance (Yellowstone Park is a huge rectangle with northern, western, southern, and eastern entrances) are normally snowed shut, and I think there are sections of the park that are completely inaccessible (don’t know if this is one; this picture was taken very near Old Faithful, for what that’s worth – then again, it’s possible that you can’t get to Old Faithful in the winter either).
