This view is taken about half way between Heart Lake
and Rustic Geyser
, the main feature of Heart Lake Geyser Basin
. The geyser is separated from the trail running along the lakeshore by a patch of marshy ground, kept moist by run-off streams from the various hot springs nearby. Beyond the geyser, the land rises to 10,308 foot Mount Sheridan
, partially obscured on this occasion by low clouds.
