Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park (GALLERY)

If you’re looking for the most colorful and vibrant hot springs in all of Yellowstone National Park, Mammoth Hot Springs is the place to visit! It’s a bit far up north from the major attractions, but well worth the visit. Plan on getting here the same day you explore the Norris Geyser Basin as its just another 41 miles north of Norris. You will have the most colorful pictures in Mammoth Hot Springs from your visit to Yellowstone here. The video and pictures below speak for themselves!
