We stopped by the continental divide to enjoy the lilly pools

A sleeping old faithful, when we pulled up, it was already going off.

Castle Geyser, a rare one to witness, goes off about once per day

It was just starting to erupt as we approached it

  1. This is sooooo interesting Are the Emerald pools and other pools the geishers that erupt or are they 2 separate things? The pools are beautiful and have exquisite color. Love Gram

  2. The pools generally do not erupt, though some geysers erupt from pools.

  3. The Vietnamese New Year, or as locally known, Tet Nguyen Dan or simply Tet, will take place on 16 February 2018. The day is also called Feast of the First Morning or shortly Tet and is the most important of all Vietnam holidays. It is the feast of the new year after the moon calendar.
