Mammoth Hot Springs.

Mammoth Hot Springs.

Heat, water, limestone, and a rock fracture all combine to form one of the most popular attractions within Yellowstone National Park; Mammoth Hot Springs. 

Terraces made of crystallized calcium carbonate, with temperatures of around 161°F, these are considered some of the most colorful and ornate natural terraces in the world. 

Located in Northern Yellowstone, allow for an hour to explore the hot springs and wander from terrace to terrace. A beautifully laid tourist trail allows visitors to circumnavigate the springs, taking in spectacular views from every angle.

  1. such a beautiful place!

    • Yellowstone is phenomenally beautiful!

  2. Megan,

    I have to go to Yellow stone sooner or later! I keep hearing about it, seeing it, argh, am I missing out?

    Are you going to rest in the hot springs over there?



    • Yellowstone is one of the best spots in the US! You’re definitely missing out! Though that being said there are so many amazing places in the world; but if you’re in the area I highly recommend a visit.

      Recommend going in the afternoon because there are huge amounts of tourists in the morning. Also if you plan on visiting a few times recommend buying a US National Parks Pass. $80 for the year gets you entry into any US National Park – it’s the most worthwhile thing we’ve bought this year! $35 for one visit into Yellowstone on it’s own.

  3. I’ve never made it to Yellowstone, despite being in Northern Colorado for 4 times! Every time I was dissuaded by my American co-workers. They say: “don’t waste your time going there, we have nice views in our own backyard. If you want to, go straight to Calgary, where the beauty is many times better!”

    • The view at Calgary probably is 20 times better – though you could always plan a roadtrip from Colorado and go North through Yellowstone to make the comparison for yourself :D

      It is definitely very touristy, so I recommend going in the afternoon, but the area is simply stunning so I wouldn’t completely write off the experience!
