    Yes, they do that sort of thing. But the basic temperature of the water is still way too hot to support human (or canine!) life. And has been, according to the scientists, for many thousands of years. I think volcanic activity in Yellowstone itself dates back over two million years, and is caused, from what I understand, by a 'hot spot' over which the land mass is slowly passing. Originally it apparently impacted areas now to the west of where it is now and eventually (in millions and millions of years), it will apparently affect areas of Montana to the northeast. But we will not see anything of that in our lifetimes.

      However, different bacteria reflect different wavelengths of the light spectrum which is why you see different colors.  All natural water has bacteria.  When you start to add unnatural things or change the pH of the water, new bacteria might arrive changing the colors that get reflected back.  Pretty colors in certain parts of nature are actually signs of human interference unfortunately.
