vingt et un: Lo-fi Glory

Because some Yellowstone visitors can't seem to stop themselves from heaving trash into this geothermic pool named Morning Glory, you now find it with a sign titled "Fading Glory". The trash thrown into the pool becomes embedded in the sides of the spring, which alters water circulation and decreases water temp, consequently causing the yellow and orange microorganisms on the outside of the pool to spread towards the center of the pool, encroaching on the blue area. Another Truth in Nature moment for me.
