Circles on Pebbles A rising gas bubble from the spring floor causes ripples on he surface of Kelly Warm Springs. The Springs lies along a fault line on the east side of Jackson Hole. The water enters the aquifer higher up in the Gros Ventre Mountains and ends up flowing down the strata until it get deep below the Jackson Hole valley floor. During its trip to depth, the water is heated by the natural geothermal gradient of the earth. It then rises to the surface along faults and forms the Kelly Warm Spring with water around 85°F. It is believed that locals released their pet fish into the spring giving rise to the current tropical fish population. The spring is located near the town of Kelly in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Copyright by WyoJones. Used with permission. All rights reserved.

I don’t know, I think this one from the hubs might be the most “wormhole” I’ve posted in a while.

What do you think? Has some potential for cool transit, but could also be a bit bumpy.

I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value).  (And don’t forget that once a quarter I’ll be tossing in something fun from the Perilously Fun Shop!) Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month.

Perilously yours,

Pauline

    Feel like you want to paddle in there feel the effects of the ripples.

      That would totally be fun to paddle in but bet it would also be very cold!
