Mammoth Hot Springs are hot-water springs, caused by the precipitation of lime and minerals at the surface. Algae and bacteria live in the hot water pools and thus ensure - depending on the water temperature - for the spectacular variety of colors that can change from year to year. On this short stroll along the most spectacular springs and terraces we learn more about this several million years old natural wonder and visit the most famous examples, such as Minerva spring, the Liberty Cap or Jupiter spring.
