Photographer's Note

TEs such a sharing place. Shortly before travelling to the US, I visited a photo that Barbara took of Utah. She kindly offered to lend me her Utah guide book and a few days later it arrived by mail. Of course it was much more detailed than my guide book covering the national parks of western US. One thing that struck me was a penciled in X next to a paragraph about the Crystal Geyser near Green River (north west of Arches National Park). It was written that even though the geyser only erupts 2 to 4 times a day (up to a height of 40m)) the colorful surroundings (due to accumulated minerqals) are still worth the visit even if you dont see it in action. As I love colours, it was a worthwhile detour even though it only bubbled when we were there.
For info, the geyser is not volcanic and is cold-water. Its pressurized carbon dioxide.
Anyway I would like to thank Barbara for lending me her guide book and for marking the cross.

TE est vraiment un lieu de partage. Peu avant notre d廧art aux USA, jai visit une photo que Barbara avait prise de l彋at dUtah. Elle a gentillement propos de me pr皻er son guide sur lUtah et quelques jours plus tard, je lai re蓰 par courrier. Bien sr il 彋ait bien plus d彋aill que mon guide sur les parcs nationaux de louest am廨icain. Une chose qui ma frapp 彋ait une croix dessin e c矌 dune rubrique concernant le geyser Crystal situ pr鋊 de Green River (nord-ouest du parc national des Arches). C彋ait 嶰rit que bien que le geyser nentre en 廨uption (jusqu une hauteur de 40m) que 2 4 fois par jours, les alentours color廥 ( cause de laccumulation de min廨aux) valent toujours la visite m瘱e sans le voir en action. Comme jadore des couleurs, le d彋our en valait la peine bien quil ne faisait que quelques bulles durant notre visite.
Pour info, le geyser na rien de volcanique mais de gaz carbonique pressuris et leau est froide. Donc, jaimerais remercier Barbara pour mavoir pr皻 son guide et pour avoir marqu la croix.
