Located about 5 miles (8.1k) inside the north entrance station which is near Gardiner, Montana, Mammoth Hot Springs is the only hydrothermal area of the park that is accessible by vehicle all year. Not dramatic like the geysers, and mostly lacking the bold colors of...More

coming north from The Tetons and on the descent into Mamoth you stop at the upper and lower terraces. The waters trickling over the stones for millions of years have left wonderful shapes and sculptured the landscape.

wonderful atmosphere to be tested in different weather conditions (sunny, cludy) as well as at different times of the day (morning, afternoon) to catch different lights. Nicely snowy and frozen schemes in the winter

What planet was I on?? The layers of hot steaming water made me feel like I was on another planet. Keeps you grounded when you visit a place like Yellowstone..

So there isn't a huge burst of scalding water that's going to happen here but you can see the after effects of that same mineral fortified water on the surroundings here. When the sun shines directly on the stripped away rocks you'll be able to...More

This thermal feature is beautiful and very unique in the park. There's nothing else like it so take some time and walk around the boardwalks and drive the little scenic drive.
