Chocolate Pots | Yellowstone National Park

The Chocolate Pots are colorful and unusual formations located along the Gibbon River in Yellowstone National Park. They are unique for their rich, dark-brown, chocolate color. The three to four-feet-high cones have green, yellow, brown and orange streaks formed by warm, water loving bacteria and algae. Mineral oxides are responsible for the dark-brown color.
