Crystals deposited by the sulfurous vapors

     This image does not do these crystals justice.  They are beautiful when viewed first hand. The needle like projections range form 2mm to 12mm in length. 

     The problem with this picture was that the steam kept fogging up the lens of the camera.  So, I had to step back about 6 feet and zoom in.  Then the steam made it difficult to get a clear picture... :-(   To keep the steamy vapors at bay I should have brought a fan and a REALLY long extension cord!
