Yellowstone National Park | About Face from Inspiration Point | Wyoming, USA

Yellowstone National Park | About Face from Inspiration Point | Wyoming, USA ||

After feeling inspired from Inspiration Point, I turned around to see a bluish glimpse upon the cloudy skies.

The effect was so surreal to me. The view is divided in half by the diagonal shape of the rocky mountain. One side is yellowish, the otherside greyish and just a hint of blue at the center.

Why is it Yellowstone?
Because of the yellow rocks in the rock cliffs, the park was named Yellowstone. Native Americans first called “Mitzi-a-dazi,” or the “River of Yellow Rocks” due to the iron in the rocks casts causes them to cast a yellow tint.   Later French fur trappers translated this to “Yellow Rock” or “Yellow Stone.”
