The green grass in my painting is called warm spring spikerush and only grows in a few places in the entire world and Yellowstone National Park is one.  Except for spring time, the grass is generally green year round.

It grows along several miles of Obsidian Creek which in places parallels the highway from Norris Junction to mammoth.  It requires the water to be a precise balance of heat and mineral content to grow.  With the spring runoff, the balances are diluted and the grass starts to die off, but when the water returns to those delicate balances, the grass makes a come back.

In Autumn Rush, I've added two bull elk about to "rush" each other with the victor winning control of the group of cows in the distance.
