The Three Forms of Water

We all know that matter has three forms, liquid, solid and gas. In most cases it is rare to find conditions where you can see two forms of a substance at the same time but water is the exception. Here on the Madison River in Yellowstone we were able to see all three forms of water. The liquid form flowing in the river, the solid snow on the shoreline and steam rising up from the water which was warmer then the surrounding air.
