yellowstones cracks, veins, gases, and elements

this was day 2 of our trip to Yellowstone, back in August 2016. If you haven’t already, check out day 1.

the day started off with fog. the sun silently peered through the clouds and eventually burned through.


clearing it’s way for a bright ambush of patchy blue clouds


the landscape of Yellowstone is full of surprises. earths presence, if no where else, is strongly felt in Yellowstone.

the inner matter of earth, is literally flowing out of and settling into yellowstone.

providing science experiments. fermentations. gases. oils. pressure.


that come together and create masterpieces


reflecting the sky through it’s cracks, veins, smells, and elements

sometimes, even looking like the landscape of a war ground when the vents letting out gases appear to be the smoke of a burned land


and then there’s old faithful – good for it’s name. reliable.


the keepers of the land

what sometimes may be tempting, can be quite dangerous

the earth is stewing

the veins, stretch long and touch us

so deep, they go

and with colors, that burn the eye

life, flourishes

there’s something so wild about this place, that makes us all so curious
