Mammoth Hot Springs
Mammoth Hot Springs may be Yellowstone's most unusual
thermal formation. It looks like a cross between a glacier
and a layered wedding cake, with hot running water thrown
in. Let the geologists explain this one.
The Mammoth Hot Springs have different names, but the
Minerva Spring shown here is the largest and most dramatic.
There are trails to other springs and views from the top, as
presented in my video.
Yellowstone also offers pools of boiling mud in another
section of the park. This is the Mud Volcano, and it's
not going to win any Yellowstone beauty contests.
