Mammoth Hot Springs terraces in Yellowstone

One of the most attractive areas that we can find in our trip to Yellowstones National Park It is called Mammoth Hot Springs.

Located in north of the national park, just 8 kilometers from the entrance to it, Mammoth Hot Springs It is an area of hot spring springs that run along a limestone rocky surface, so that high water temperatures (more than 70 degrees) create terraces with a colorful surface.

But given the great variability that according to the time the year has the flow of water, there are long seasons in whichthe rocky areas dry, the color disappears and there are some rococo promontories with a bright white color.

In front of the other areas of yellowstone national parkWhere geysers abound, Mammoth Hot Springs does not have enough strength to provoke a geyser. It is a water that comes through different internal fractures from a volcanic deposit located 35 kilometers, too far away to cause a geyser.

For visit Mammoth Hot Springs there is a route with some walkways that run so that you can see the different formations of the terraces.
