Beautiful Mammoth Hot Springs

I went digging through my archives and found these photos of Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Definitely one of my favorite places to visit and photograph, this place never ceases to amaze me with its beauty.

I envision Hot Springs as ponds where one can jump in and enjoy. Seems a bit sparse on the water supply! Is the water warm?

Thanks for the comment Jill. One does usually think of hot springs as a place to kick back and relax. Can't do that here, though. These springs are way too hot. In fact, people have died falling into the various springs in Yellowstone. If they hike at night and aren't familiar with the area or they aren't aware that some hot springs are too hot. One poor guy went in to rescue his dog after it fell into a spring. Haven't heard anything lately. They have signs posted all over Mammoth so they may have done the same thing around the rest of the park. Also there's a high concentration of sulphur in the park, so I don't think that's good for people either. There are some places near here that are resort springs. Chico and Fairmont are pretty popular.
