Rivers Run Through It

Calcite Springs And The Yellowstone River

Calcite Springs (the steaming part) and the Yellowstone River

No matter where you drive within Yellowstone National Park, you’ll encounter a number of rivers running through the land.  According to a newly-published article in the National Parks Traveler, the rivers of this park are key to understanding the hydrothermal activity there.  Click on any of the photos to be taken to this article, then spend some time reading the other articles, as well.
