Covering 2.2 million acres of Wyoming’s northwest corner, Yellowstone National Parks encompasses plateaus and ranges, geysers and lakes. Yellowstone Lake is one of the largest high altitude lakes in the world covering 125 square miles at an elevation of 7733 ft. Beneath the surface is a netherworld of florescent algae’s, geothermal activity and the remains of a little known maritime history.
In the West Thumb Geyser Basin area of the lake the underwater world is a magnificent array of sparkling colors, course geological features and hot water upwelling’s of thermal vents similar to those on land. As the iconic old faithful itself, these underwater features are a dramatic illustration of the active nature of the earth just below the surface of Yellowstone.
