Photographer's Note

The Gibbon river is in the centre of Yellowstone National Park and the 20-30 mile river runs close to what is considered the original caldera boundary. It rises at Glebe lake, passes through the Norris Geyser Basin and the Gibbon Geyser Basin and then through the Gibbon River Canyon to its confluence with the Firehole River to form the Madison River. There is much thermal activity to be seen in the area and not restricted to the main sites marked on the maps. In this image you can see fumaroles in the distance. There are estimated to be 4,000 fumaroles within the park and the hottest hydrothermal features there.
More information about visiting Yellowstone in the extreme cold of winter can be found in the notes from some of my other recent TE pictures.
