Mammoth

Hot Springs

The Mammoth Hot Springs area is one unique place to explore! Hot springs galore and a whole lot of travertine; limestone that is!

Interesting Facts:  The hot water that feeds Mammoth Hot Springs comes from the Norris Geyser Basin by traveling underground via a fault line. The algae living in these warm pools have tinted the travertine shades of brown, orange, red, and green.

Did you know there was a Fort Yellowstone? Fort Yellowstone was the former U.S. Army post that was in charge of administration and protection of the Park from 1886 to 1916. The Army turned the Fort over to the National Park Service in 1918. The National Park Service still uses the facilities of Fort Yellowstone (see picture below of the Engineer Office). The Army helped define how the national parks were to be managed by developing regulations on conservation. A majority of those policies developed by the Army were later adopted by the National Park Service.

Interesting Fact #1:  The hats worn by National Park Service Rangers were adopted from the hats originally used by the Army as part of their uniforms.

Interesting Fact #2:  The Mammoth Hotel and Fort Yellowstone are built on the Hotel Terrace.

From May 2015 - March 2016, Sherry and Sean traveled the country and lived in a 5th wheel R.V. They took pictures, hiked mountains, and saw amazing sights. They are now settled in Fort Myers, Florida and are continuing to take pictures and seeing amazing sights. This is the blog of their journey from leaving St. Louis and starting an adventure, to living in Florida and doing photography. Enjoy the stories, and leave comments if you have one to share!
