Another volcanic hot eruption that should be seen

Another volcanic hot eruption that should be seen and the walls it has created look like steps, but do not do it as the water is almost boiling and you will dissolve - NO KIDDING

It was a beautiful view, tourist bus folks were pushy and wouldn't let you pass while they were consumed with taking selfies and jumping in the way of your photos. They really need to limit the number of tour busses per site at a time. I was happy I got to experience the beauty of this place and the last... More

This is a beautiful area that looks other worldly. Walkways lead to views of the pools and the deposits made by the pools over many years. There were two small herds of elk who walked across the area while we were there. They came very close and almost seemed at ease with the tourists. The village nearby has food, gas... More

You must see it to believe it. This place is gorgeous.Views are breathtaking, fairly decent walk but we could do it with infant in arms got us a little tired. There are quite a few steps on boardwalk so stroller may not work.

We started from West Yellowstone early in the morning, drove immediately to the Grand Canyon, and then headed north along the Grand Loop Road. We had planned to stop at the Roosevelt Lodge dining room for lunch, but it was pretty crowded, so on we drove to Mammoth. The facilities at MHS are able to accommodate larger crowds, although we...

First timer at Yellowstone and I have to say this was one of my favorite stops. Beautiful and amazing hot spring. The colors and little pools are just absolutely beautiful. Also neat to know that it grows every year - Yellowstone is a phenomenal place-- I will be back and will spend more time here next time.

Yellowstone has many wonderful places to visit. This one was mesmerizing! Terraces built over many years by nature by the minerals flowing from the hot springs down the terraces. It is beautiful in color and very big! The walkway to view the front of the terrace is an easy walk and worth the effort. Parking was a problem because it... More

We last visited the terraces 20 plus years ago and my how mother nature likes to change things up. Currently there is only one beautiful terrace, but it is worth seeing. The area is not too crowded unless of course you have followed a tour bus in. We also did not see any elk hanging out on the terraces this... More

It is unique, but most can be seen by driving by slowly. There are several spots to pull off and snap pictures, or to park and walk around. Truly most of what you can see from the road is what is in the designated parking spots. Less the sulfur smell.

The hot springs have a rock which is mammoth shaped. there are hot springs erupting all over the place, and a trip by car is the best way to see them.
