While Yellowstone was named after the light calcium deposits found along the Yellowstone River that runs through the park, the geothermal activity found in Yellowstone truly makes it famous. The park has one of the largest active volcanoes in the world and that geothermal activity accounts for the tremendous number of hydrothermal features such as geysers, hot springs, fumaroles, travertine terraces, and mudpots. Although I could probably say this for nearly every feature of the park, Yellowstone’s unique geology and hydrothermal features are things you surely have to experience in person to get a true feel for what they look and smell like.
