Norris Geyser Basin
Yellowstone National Park is full of areas like this-geyser basins-large,open areas where geothermic pressure from below the ground's surface force up various geysers and springs.The Norris Basin is one of the more accessible.
Although Thomas Moran's famous sketches of Yellowstone falls were actually done from the northern rim(now known as Moran Point),the name Artist Point has stuck with this area for more than a century because of its beauty.
