In all my prior visits to Yellowstone National Park Gus and I have never stopped to explore the West Thumb Geyser Basin. So, as we came around the south end of the park we decided to stop here and explore someplace new. The juxtaposition of hot springs and cold, clear blue water is striking. We walked the boardwalks wide-eyed and full of wonder.
Birds Seen at West Thumb Geyser Basin:
- Common Merganser
- gull species (immatures flying around)
- Common Raven
