Photographer's Note

TE痴 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 don稚 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. It痴 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駱art aux USA, j誕i visit une photo que Barbara avait prise de l帝tat d旦tah. Elle a gentillement propos de me pr黎er son guide sur l旦tah et quelques jours plus tard, je l誕i re輹 par courrier. Bien sr il 騁ait bien plus d騁aill que mon guide sur les parcs nationaux de l弛uest am駻icain. Une chose qui m誕 frapp 騁ait une croix dessin e ct d置ne rubrique concernant le geyser Crystal situ pr鑚 de Green River (nord-ouest du parc national des Arches). C帝tait 馗rit que bien que le geyser n弾ntre en 駻uption (jusqu亭 une hauteur de 40m) que 2 4 fois par jours, les alentours color駸 ( cause de l誕ccumulation de min駻aux) valent toujours la visite m麥e sans le voir en action. Comme j誕dore des couleurs, le d騁our en valait la peine bien qu段l ne faisait que quelques bulles durant notre visite.
Pour info, le geyser n誕 rien de volcanique mais de gaz carbonique pressuris et l弾au est froide. Donc, j誕imerais remercier Barbara pour m誕voir pr黎 son guide et pour avoir marqu la croix.
