The springs have caused colourful rock formations which can be seen from various boardwalks, probably about 2 miles walking in total. Good views of the town and surrounding mountains as well. The town is interesting at this time of year due to elk wandering around...More

This area is very strange looking. There are hot springs and thermal features which have spewed their fluids onto trees which have died and turned white. They are actually petrified trees and look weird.

This is worth the stop! You can take a trail walk and see how the springs are covering everything and are constantly growing and changing. The colors also vary and the structures differ. Yellowstone elves are at work making things pretty for us!!

There are two main spots to see the hot springs, below and up top. Both are worth a visit if you can do it. The canary hot spring was our favorite. Reminded us of Pammukale in Turkey, but on a smaller scale.
