This picture was taken 3 years ago at the Boiling River in Yellowstone NP. It is called that because the geothermal water emerges from the ground and drains into the Gardner River here. It’s not quite boiling but it is hot enough to burn. The recent storms and flooding have completely changed the site; the path to walk from the parking has been washed away and river has changed its course so that the geothermal water no longer joins where it did before.
It is stunning to see pictures of roads washed out and bridges vanished. Another reminder of forces that dwarf the power of human efforts.
