We walked around the paths to see the little geysers, the hot springs and the color pools. N2 learned in their junior ranger books that each color in the color pools are a different organism and that they are different temperatures. Blue is the hottest, then yellow, then orange, then brown and finally green is the coolest. They could look at the pools and tell me which color was the hottest and which pool wasn't so hot. Knowing that was handy to make them look at pools a little longer :)
Below is Giant. It hasn't erupted since 2010. Splashing in the cone is normal. We thought it would have been really cool if we had seen it go off when we were standing there. Too bad it didn't.

I really loved watching the water flow away from geysers and see the colors in the rock.
