Mammoth Hot Spring
Mammoth Hot Springs is a large complex of springs created over thousands of years. Hot water from the springs cooled and deposited calcium carbonate, leaving behind dramatic bleached white hues of frozen cascading terraced pools.
Soak in the Boiling River
I know you’re dreaming of slipping into a hot spring after seeing so many of them in Yellowstone. But remember they are dangerous. Instead, head to the Boiling River, not as dangerous as the name denotes.
I never grew tired of those rolling green hills, with the Yellowstone river running through it, steam rising up from the sides of the road reminding you of the unstable world that lived underneath you.
Grand Canyon of Yellowstone National Park
The Yellowstone River runs through here, plunging 109 feet at the Upper Falls and then another 308 feet at the spectacular Lower Falls down into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
This is where you’ll find the full glory of the pastel rainbow colors of the canyon and the spraying waterfalls in the middle of the view. We were told around 9am is the best time to come and possibly see a rainbow shooting across the falls. We didn’t see it!
