Yellowstone - Canary Spring

One of the places we visited in Yellowstone was Mammoth Hot Springs, famous for a series of terraced springs that sometimes flow and sometimes don't. Several of the springs were flowing when we were there, including Canary Spring, shown here at its source.
As it flows downhill it creates a series of natural terraces.
The heat and minerals of the water kill nearby trees.
These springs are uniquely beautiful, and I'll have more photographs of them in future posts.

  4. Not a place to soak I presume. The rimstone walls definitely create a stair step look.

  19. Oh, what a wonderful place! It has been many years since I was there. In July, it was mostly rather cold in the upper elevations, therefore rather steamy.
