Directions From Livingston to Mammoth Hot Springs [Time Lapse]
You CAN'T get lost driving from Livingston, Montana down to Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Just in case you've never made that trip, the good folks at Bonafide Film House have filmed the trip in time lapse form for ya!
The drive down will take you all the way through the Paradise Valley into the park...just drive south!
Never seen Mammoth Hot Springs?
Mammoth Hot Springs is a large complex of hot springs on a hill of travertine in Yellowstone National Park adjacent to Fort Yellowstone and the Mammoth Hot Springs Historic District.
It was created over thousands of years as hot water from the spring cooled and deposited calcium carbonate (over two tons flow into Mammoth each day in a solution).
Because of the huge amount of geothermal vents, travertine flourishes.
Although these springs lie outside the caldera boundary, their energy has been attributed to the same magmatic system that fuels other Yellowstone geothermal areas.
