Liberty Cap

Our second day in Yellowstone National Park started close to our hotel, in the north-western corner of the park. Here are the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces, a large complex of hot springs on a hill of travertine. Some of the terraces are seen in the background here and of course I will show many more photos from this place as well. The rock in the foreground is called Liberty Cap. It is also made of travertine, about 12 metres high and an extinct hot spring cone. It got its name in 1871 by members of an early expedition to Yellowstone, who were reminded by the caps worn by peasant in the French Revolution, so-called liberty caps.
