The Grand Prismatic Spring is a hot spring in Yellowstone National Park. It gets its name from the wide array of colors displayed in the spring. Bacteria causes the formation of colors as the bacteria reacts to changes in the water temperature.
Mesa and Osprey waterfalls are located in and around Yellowstone National Park.
