The drive from Madison to Mammoth is my favorite drive in the park. The best time is early morning or dusk. The animals are out and this is the time to see them. Its always fun to watch the elk that wander around Mammoth, especially during the mating season, called the rut. There is a great general store, hotel, nice... More

This place is breath taking!! I took so many pics and I look back on them and they look so fake. If I didn't see it with my own two eyes I would not believe it was real ;)

We were there in a very hot day, had to leave once our water ran out. Mostly hiking on stairs and wooden boardwalks, but I think you can drive up the worst of it. The springs were cool to see, I'm not sure I would go a second time.

This place is a great end to one's vacation! Like cold glacier water flowing down onto rocky waterfalls made of smooth, weathered, round cakes of rock.

The many different levels of Mammoth Hot Springs are a great attraction of the park. Take your time and see all of it, we had to run due to an impending thunder storm.

This is a great place in winter. Snow and cold make it much more magical. Almost no one on the boardwalk. Good place to get some exercise if you have been riding around in a car or tour vehicle.

You can't see Yellowstone and miss this area. Nice places to stay and eat in this area. If you haven't been there then give it a drive.

Mammoth springs is another of the places, a little different as all the geysers in Yellowstone are.we travelled quite a way to see the springs, they reminded me of icing on a birthday cake. Lots of walks around the area too.on the way back we saw a Park Ranger being chased by a honey coloured bear, we were parked in... More

This is one of the favorite spots in Yellowstone National Park. To take a clear, you have to walk up the small hill (the terrace) on the wooden path. You would not see eruption of spring water, but beautiful pools of mineral water there. These pools of mineral water look similar to those found in "Cotton Castle" in Turkey and... More

Please don't believe reports that Mammoth is "drying up" or "dying!" It's been flowing for a great long time and changing all along. I think some are disappointed that the decades-long favorite feature Minerva Terrace stopped flowing in 2001. There are hundreds of meters of Boardwalk going along long past attractions to make you wonder why they were built back... More
