POTD: Yellowstone Thumb

POTD: Yellowstone ThumbYellowstone Thumb Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 2014

I always think of this dormant hot springs feature as being a giant thumb, but the official name is Liberty Cap. It was named that in 1877 because of it’s resemblance to the shape of the peaked red hats (bonnet rouge) worn during the French Revolution. 19b7a695-8b82-486d-9a1d-e60d3933b0b5  ]]>
