Mammoth Hot Spring and the North


Visit Mammoth Hot Springs, one of the outstanding thermal features of Yellowstone National Park. The Mammoth Hot Springs area is unique and is located very close to the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park away from other attractions of the park. The Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces are the large complex of vibrant travertine deposited from the hot mineral springs. Take a stroll on boardwalk above the steaming hydrothermal features and embrace the beauty of a series of travertine terraces and the thermal pools. Drive the 1 mile loop road around the Upper Terraces to view the Main Terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs, the Fort Yellowstone and the Gardner River, and the hydrothermal features like Orange Spring Mound

These photos are from our two day trip to Yellowstone National park in the late August 2012.
