Just a couple of shots from my trip to yellowstone over the weekend...

1. Mammoth Hot Springs

This one is showing a little pixelated, but the original size looks great.

2. Morning Glory Thermal Pool

Was quite disappointed with how the morning glory pool has changed colour since I was last in Yellowstone in 2004 - a lot less blue, and now has some of the bacteria floating on the top.

quote from wiki on why its not blue anymore

Several entryways have been clogged due to objects being thrown in by tourists, reducing the hot water supply, and in turn altering the overall appearance of the pool. Several attempts by park officials to artificially induce eruptions to clear the pool of debris and clear blocked entryways have been met with mixed results. As a result of the vandalism, Morning Glory is also known as Fading Glory

http://en.wikipedia.or​g/wiki/Morning_Glory_P​ool (external link) wiki has some photos taken that show the change in colour from 1966 to 2007

I have some strong words for those people that throw their garbage in, ruining what people are trying to preserve. :mad:

I agree, vandalism especially in national parks is just not on. Littering and dropping cigarette butts in national parks are also right up there with vandalism, it's absolutely disgusting. Sadly, the care factor is just not out there.

How much of nature was destroyed in order for you gents to type this in the forum. After all computers consist of natural resources that are mined. We drive cars that pollute and lets not forget the pollution caused in order to produce our cameras ......

Otherwise yes put your rubbish in the bin :lol:

If everyone thought like you, the world would cease to exist. There are limitations, to what we can and can not do.

Littering in a national park that is listed in UNESCO's World Heritage list is a no, no. Heck no one should be littering in a national park period, or even littering on the streets.

Being nature & landscape photographers (I guess that's why you are here), one should be somewhat a conservationist. Protection what one we deem beautiful. Some of the world's best nature/landscape photographers are conservationist. Which is why they are so into capturing the beauty of nature.

But sometimes that's what happen when a place become famous. More and more people will start to visit. And eventually, it will be ruined. Maybe not always intentional. But as more and more people visits, the easier that "Accident" happens.

I've always thought Morning Glory Pool was one of YNP's prettiest sights. I once saw lots of debris in it that rangers have managed to remove. I don't understand why anyone feels entitled to litter anywhere, but to toss crap into a beautiful pool is sick. Yes, our lives involve some degree of pollution, but no one can justify tossing crap into this place.

I knew it was bad, with discarded O2 tanks and stuff lying around. They should shut the mountain down, and hire all the sherpas to clean it out. Then raise climbing fees for the next open season.
