Mammoth Hot Springs

Midway Geyser Basin
Slide Home to the richly colored Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone’s largest hot springs, the Midway Geyser Basin is a small area with big sights.

Slide While a canoe ride across the surface of beautiful Yellowstone Lake may indicate just another placid mountain lake, the National Park Service explains that the bottom of the lake is actually covered with geysers, hot springs and deep canyons. Despite its tumultuous underbelly, Yellowstone Lake is the perfect place to enjoy the serenity of the mountains. of 8
Slide Located in the Canyon District of the park, the Lower Falls is one of three waterfalls in the area, though it is arguably the most impressive. Drawn to its spectacular height, visitors of the Lower Falls can appreciate the tallest waterfall in Yellowstone National Park from a platform at the brink of the falls, Lookout Point, Red Rock Point or from various points on the South Rim Trail. of 8
Slide No trip to Yellowstone is complete without catching a glimpse of the impressive array of wildlife. There are more than 200 species of animals living in the park, according to the National Park Service, including bison, elk, bighorn sheep, moose and grizzly bears.
