    Yellowstone 2

    August 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Heutige Attraktion sind die Mammoth Hot Springs!
    Es heißt warten um einen Parkplatz zu bekommen, dann geht es mit vielen anderen Touristen über kurze beplankte Wege.
    Lange Wanderwege findet man hier nur schwer!
    Aber trotzdem war auch dieser ein toller Tag an dem, wie wir finde, wirklich schöne Bilder entstanden sind!😊

    Out of this world.

    August 24, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    One of the recommendations was Mammoth Springs - in fairness we were planning on going anyway but they were adamant it was well worth it. So as the rain drops started to fall we headed off. As the mountainous formations came in to sight, so did the sun. Timed that one well. Amazingly, though it was clearly busy, we found some parking. Was this going to be a chunner free day? Stopped off at the visitor centre - a few interesting bits & pieces. Bought a card for Aidan & Alice - only $2.99 (it was a jigsaw) had my change ready except that didn't include tax. You have no idea how much things are. Ludicrous. It's not even consistent - Walmart & petrol stations price with tax. Anyway chunnered to her & then Liz - neither having any power to do anything & then when buying postcards 3 for $1 - no $1.06 ... Liz has the patience of a saint or selective hearing. Began the walk up the calcite formations created by the Mammoth Springs only to be stopped by a crowd - watching something - apparently a snake - a big snake. Some guy said it was harmless but eats rattlesnakes - not sure how that stacks up. Steps led us upwards to a range of steadily more intricate plateaus created by the hot spring deposits. Each and every time it seemed you were in a steadily more weird & other worldly place. The heat was quite oppressive combined with the sun & shelter from the wind. The further along, the fewer coach parties there were which suited us nicely. The finale was like some alien cross of an epically iced cake and a snowy neon mountain. Downhill all the way for a cold drink. Called it a day & started the 90 min drive back. Bad driving aside (which is becoming the normal expectation) we got back to the hotel just as the heavens opened. Quick dash across the road for take away pizza.Read more

    The Third Chapter @ Yellowstone

    September 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 39 °F

    This morning, we headed back to our old friend, the Yellowstone West entrance, and then north to Mammoth Hot Springs. Today's drive was interesting, as we got a glimpse of a young male elk dancing to his own inner soundtrack (okay, it actually looked like he was clearing off his antlers) and quite a few bison.

    Mammoth Hot Springs was fascinating - it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie set! We stopped in Gardiner to check out the Yellowstone North Entrance and grab lunch before heading north to Glacier.

    Yellowstone West nach Gardiner

    September 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nachdem wir die Süd und Nord Runde im Park gesehen haben sind wir nach Gardiner weitergereist. Dieser Ort liegt vor dem Nordeingang. Eigentlich wäre eine Zwischenübernachtung am Nordeingang nicht nötig gewesen, aber dadurch hatten wir genug Zeit die Mammoth Hot Springs anzuschauen.

    Somit haben wir alle wichtigen Punkte des Yellowstone Nationalpark gesehen. Ein wirklich beeindruckender Ort auf diesem Planeten.

    Abschliessend würde ich 3 Orte im Yellowstone NP als besonders Empfehlenswert nennen: Die Geysire am Old Faithful, das Noris Geysir Basin und die Mammoth Hot Springs. Die vielen kleinen Trails und Geysire sind zwar auch sehenswert, aber wenn man alle anschauen will braucht man eine ganze Woche im Park.

    Driving to Mammoth

    September 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We headed up north because we all wanted to see the Mammoth and the North Entrance. Along the way our eagle-eye animal spotter (Eric of course) found some mountain goats on the opposite side of he road on a rocky cliff. In the photo of the waterfall you can see mama and baby along the bend in the river to the left. After a quick photo shoot we continued on north to Mammoth Hot Springs, which were amazing. The water carries minerals and deposits them in layers, creating an ever-changing sculpture of stone.Read more
