Yellowstone National Park

Isa Lake. This is at Craig Pass between Old Faithful and West Thumb. It is the only known lake in the world that drains to two different oceans "backwards"! On the East side, it drains into the Lewis River, which ends up in the Pacific Ocean. On the West side, it drains into the Firhole River which ends up in the Atlantic Ocean! This pass had been closed by snow the day before!

other sizes: small medium large original
