Yellowstone has so many beautiful areas that it's difficult to choose a favorite, but if I had to, it would be the northwestern part of the park near Mammoth Hot Springs. I love the views of the mountains in the distance and the abundance of wildlife in the Lamar Valley. And, of course, there are the terraces at Mammoth itself. While not as dramatic as the geysers in the various basins, they're still a beautiful example of thermal features.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
