Favorite thing Yellowstone has a crazy amount of gorgeous unusual scenery .. never seen anything like this. We missed it or first visit in the spring but glad we found it this trip. Didn't stay long .. looked around and took some pic's there were some herds of elk there which were neat to see. Wish we lived nearby so could see this in all seasons and just hang out .. but we only had a week to see Yellowstone .. Tetons and drive to Canyonlands and arches in Utah. So wanted to see as much as we could. The pics don't do any of it justice .. even though the pics are good ..
Favorite thing Hot Springs are deep channels through which water flows from the molten interior of the earth; closer to the surface in Yellowstone than anywhere else on the planet!
The Park's headquarters & largest visitor center are at Mammoth.
Favorite thing See for yourself the amazing MAMMOTH HOT SPRING: In the northwest corner of the park, hot water rises through beds of limestone (instead of lava) & shaped balconies & colorful steaming terraces of Travertine (Calcium Carbonate).
Favorite thing CANARY SPRINGS: Part of the MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS. Named for its yellow algae growing along the edges, it is the most active of the springs in the main terrace.
Favorite thing MINERVA SPRINGS: Located within the lower terrace group. One of the most beautiful in the park because of its array of brilliant colors & ornate travertine formations.
