If you fell asleep in the car ride here you might think you'd been driven to Venus (minus the blue sky and breathable air). The hillsides glisten white and yellow in the sunlight as steaming water spits and streams down the sides. Calcified cascading tiers form small pools in the path of a warm waterfall. Its as if Mother Nature... More

I read several reviews and one did say that if you do not have time to skip it. We spent one day on what I call the southern ring and loved everything we saw. We did skip a few things to try to make it completely around the southern ring in one day. We ended up getting to go back... More

Mammoth hot springs was one of the prettiest attractions at YNP. When I showed people photos, they thought they were paintings. There are different colors throughout. The white on top of the orange/brown is just beautiful. The walk around it is easy as well. I think this is a don't-miss attraction in the park.

This site is amazing as it is just made by nature. It's cascading and bubbling attraction brings out the beauty of Gods amazing beauty. Take time and it's not far to it from your car. I was in awe of how these formations are imperfectly perfect. Take plenty of pictures and discuss this with your family as you take it... More

This was a nice stop to take in where the cold water of the river meetings scalding hot water coming up from the ground to form a comfortable blend where people can sit in different pools. The hike from the parking area is approximately 10 minutes and an easy walk and there is plenty of scenery to take in...additionally a... More

This was a very beautiful and interesting land formation. It is different than most of the other sites on Yellowstone; little pools cascading down the hills like steps. I really enjoyed this site but it is a bit of a trek and far away from most of the other sites in Yellowstone. It is one of the northern most points... More

Worth the trip especially during Elk Rut season. The ranger guided hike in the morning makes this tourist hot spot a much more fulfilling stop. The is an interesting geological history to this area as well a a social background worth hearing about from the ranger. we walked from the bottom to the top and enjoyed the view once we... More

We came in the north entrance and walked the boardwalks and saw geothermal sites that reminded us of winters in the Midwest. Well worth the time also to drive the short loops for other sites.

These were pretty and they looked cool with the little pools, but for the walk around it I was not as impressed. It is worth seeing as it is an amazing natural creation, but not a must see for me.
