Mammoth Hot Springs is one of Yellowstone's signature sites, and one of the most unusual formations to be seen anywhere. Visitors generally limit themselves to the much-photographed Palette Springs on the lower terrace, but even more spectacular beauty can be found on the terraces above, a surreal moonscape of hot-spring pools, steam and crystallizing travertine. The site is so other-worldly it once ever serves as the background image for Spock's home planet, Vulcan, in the original Star Trek series. And it's a terrestrial photographer's wonderland.

Mammoth was a big highlight for us we absolutely loved the massive geothermal formation and enjoyed spotting all the little details within the formation as well. The boardwalk and trails make exploring this site easy in comparison to other places in the park. Plenty of parking and again a must visit opportunity.

Really amazing formation, larger than you'd guess from the photos. The crystallized steppes from the mineral water were fascinating.

At Madison (23 miles into the park) we turned north onto HWY 89 along the Gibbon River for the first 14 miles to Norris, and then 34 miles up to Mammoth Hot Springs. All along the way we stopped at every steaming femoral until we got to the wonderful sights of Mammoth Springs. Tom had visited this point 15 years ago but the tour bus only stopped at the bottom of the lower terrace area. --- Well we first pulled off at the upper terrace (no buses allowed) area to look at the top of the terrace within a grand 1/4 mile boardwalk view. We then went on a 1.5 mile long one way road tour with CLEO of the surrounding features above the terrace. We then went down to the highway and viewed the bottom of the terrace (that is what most tourists stop to see). The color of the terraces are just fantastic both above and below. For those that have never seen the terraces, they are a layered cascading steps tones of colorful deposits built up from underground heated water and minerals. Turned around in downtown Mammoth springs, as it is mainly only a massive resort and a few shops and restaurants were closed. Decided it was not worth the trip to go the extra 5 miles north to the park's North entrance to look at the old gate (only large enough for one way traffic way back when the park was first open.

A late season drive through the Park. What a beautiful trip. The fall colors and the wildlife were amazing. The visitors were few so the trip was fun aand easy. So glad we made the side trip on this 7-day road trip.
