Belgian Pool

The Belgian Pool located in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park is a hot spring with a deep, circular vent of clear, pale blue water, which extends westwards to an orange and brown algae-lined shallow pool. The pool name originated after a visitor from Belgium fell into it in 1929 while distracted by an eruption of nearby Castle Geyser. The water is more excellent at about 180 °F (82 °C) than other features in the area, but it was still sufficiently hot enough to cause the severe burns to which the visitor succumbed. The Belgian Pool parades a seasonal spectrum of absolutely gorgeous colors!
