Yellowstone is home of extremes. It is a landscape stationed on top of a super volcano. Within the park, there are a bunch of incredible wildlife and unique landscapes. Due to its high elevation, it also faces harsh winters. This photo is a representation of the beauty of its extremes. A beautiful, dangerous, blue hot spring surrounded by snow and ice from the park's harsh winters. A sight that occurred during early winter.
