What better time to begin our new column – AnOther Happy Monday – than on the day that is traditionally known as Blue Monday? Every week, the AnOther team will be sharing inspirational content, intended to make your Monday morning a little bit easier.
Inspired by our #yellowmonday initiative on AnOther Loves, our first post hails from the Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The spectacular Morning Glory Pool is a hot spring situated in the Upper Geyser Basin. The pool was named by Mrs E. N. McGowan, wife of assistant park superintendent, Charles McGowan in 1883. She called it "Convolutus", the Latin name for the morning glory flower, which the spring resembles. The distinct color of the pool is due to bacteria which inhabit the water. On a few rare occasions the Morning Glory Pool has erupted as a geyser, usually following an earthquake or other nearby seismic activity.
