For each of the Days posts in Yellowstone, I’ll be pretty much photo dumping a lot of beautiful photos I’ve taken throughout my route for that particular day. Some of you who wish to be mesmerized upon reaching there, you can just read the text in these beginning paragraphs.
Route taken (focus on Northwest of park): Gibbon Falls, Artists’ Paintpots, Norris Geyser Basin, Mammoth Hot Springs
*For Mammoth Hot Springs, we took a detour on day three to come back to see the Canary Hot Springs since we missed it on Day two. However, we suggest that when you are in Mammoth Hot Springs to also visit there to save time

Spoilers ahead of amazing Yellowstone photos!!
It’s split into the Porcelain Basin and Back Basin. IMO, Porcelain Basin is wayyy better than Back Basin. So depending on your time, you can decide to visit it first if you’re in a rush, or if you want to be awed you can visit it after Back Basin
Above is Liberty Cap. Finally at Mammoth Hot Springs. There is an accommodation here so there is also general store and actual hot springs for you to dip in if you stay in the accommodation. There’s restrooms and even a post office here too.
We saw so many moose when we arrived. Apparently this one beat the crap out of another moose one day before we arrived, where the second moose lost one of its antlers. The park rangers told us to step away from the moose, especially whichever direction they were heading, because this alpha moose apparently saw the second moose in the vicinity again and there was the potential they could fight again. Anti climatic ending – nothing happened though.
Make sure to visit it when you are in Mammoth Hot Spring and don’t be like us. Luckily we were near Mammoth Hot Spring along the way back, but MHS is actually at the tip of the northwest corner of the park so it’s actually quite far
