Hello Mike,

Thanks for your appreciation. You're right, it looks like Yellowstone, but it's different here : in Yellowstone, water is very hot, at Huanglong, the water comes from upper glaciers, so it's very cold.
I also know Yellowstone, when you walk in the two places, you see two differences : rocks are much more colorful at Yellowstone (I think it's because in Huonglang, the calcite is the only kind of mineral building the pools) and water is incredibly clear everywhere in Huonglang (it's only the case locally in some basins in Yellowstone). It's common for glacier-water.
Best regards,
Philippe.
