Text of sign:

 

Fading Glory

 

Morning Glory Pool is losing its brilliant color.  Through ignorance and vandalism, people have tossed objects into the hot spring, 

clogging its vent and lowering the temperature.  Brown, orange, and yellow algae-like bacteria thrive in the cooler water, 

gradually turning the vivid aqua-blue into a murkier greenish brown.

 

All thermal features are at risk.  Hot springs and geysers have fragile, complex plumbing that takes centuries to develop.  Morning

Glory's future is uncertain; you can help by immediately reporting any vandalism.

 

Every year park personnel remove hundreds of rocks, coins and other objects from Morning Glory Pool.

 

Brown, orange, and yellow algae-like bacteria thrive when the hot spring's temperature drops.

 

Graphics on the sign

 

In addition to the text there is a picture of Morning Glory Pool, a picture of a tourist throwing trash in the pool which is depicted 

as full of more trash at the bottom.  There is also a photo of a park employee cleaning out the pool.
