Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone N.P.

Grand Prismatic Spring, located in Midway Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park has the distinction of being the park’s largest hot spring. It measures approximately 370 feet in diameter and is over 121 feet deep. A description of this spring by fur trapper Osborne Russell in 1839 also makes it the earliest described thermal feature in Yellowstone that is definitely identifiable.
