Step Away from the Ecological Wonder.

Howdy y'all! It's been an insane day already, so I thought I wasn't going to be able to pull a Missive together to your liking. But then husband Ben alerted me to this story about three Canadian tourists stomping all over the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone, pictured below NOT being bothered by a bunch of hosers.
STEP AWAY FROM THE GORGEOUSNESS
The largest hot spring in the US, and the third largest in the world, the Grand Prismatic Spring is a wonder of freaking nature, a magical multi-chromatic boiling sea surrounded by intricate thousand-year-old mineral shapes, something you look at in person and decide that whether God exists or not, it's pretty mind-blowing that we live in this short sliver of time, on this specific spinning rock, that something like this can exist and you and I can see it and good image for usage-rights enabled photos.
The Grand Prismatic Spring is surrounded by a boardwalk because a) it's super fragile and any disruption could permanently damage it and b) BECAUSE IT'S A GOSH DARN BOILING SEA YOU FREAKING IDIOTS.
Anyways, the following is a screenshot of the angry reaction Ben and I had, and his plans to prevent it from happening again.
We're accepting applications now ;)
