Morning Glory Pool is a thermal feature found in the Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. A long-time favorite of park visitors, the pool was named in the 1880s for its deep blue coloration and remarkable likeness to the Morning Glory flower. Poulsen painted Morning Glory Pool on location during a trip to Yellowstone with his family.
