    Yellowstone 2

    August 15 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!😊Read more

    Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces (Yellostone

    August 28 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Ich habe es mir nicht leicht gemacht zu den fantastischen “Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces” zu kommen. Erst 8 km bergauf - bergab den “Beaver Ponts Trail“ mit Chance auf Grizzly. Dann noch einmal gefühlten 100 Höhenmetern bis zur höchsten Aussichtsplattform. Heidi hat sich den “Beaver Ponts Trail“ nicht angetan. Ein tolles weiteres Highlight, kombiniert mit Fitnessprogramm. Am Ende noch ein Schnappschuss von den „Canary Springs“.

    Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone

    July 24 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Tu spedzilismy cale popoludnie. Gorace zrodla w polaczeniu z siarka i wapieniem stworzyly te naturalne cuda. Przygoda dnia byla burza z gradem, ktora przemoczyla nas do suchej nitki :-)

    W samym centrum wydarzen byly "elki" czyli jelenie kanadyjskie. Tak blisko nie zobaczylibysmy ich nawet w zoo. Stada elkow pilnowane przez Rangersow zupelnie swobodnie poruszaly sie miedzy autami na parkingu.Read more

    Mammoth Hot Springs (1 of 3)

    May 26 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    We finished our day with a stop at the Lower Terrace of Mammoth Hot Springs. The spring's waters originate from Norris Geyser Basin. Traveling along an underground fault line through limestone, the waters pick up calcium carbonate, which is then deposited in Mammoth, becoming Travertine. Algae living in the waters color the area with beautiful hues of brown, orange, red, and green. In this area of the springs, we observed Liberty Cap, Devil's Thumb and Palette Spring.Read more

    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
