    This area has changed alot since I was young. Most of the springs are currently dry, which means less of the beautiful colors, but you still get to see all of the wonderful rock formations. Choose your route carefully, the boardwalk weaves around the springs and bad planning will have you walking uphill more than necessary. The smell of sulphur is not nearly as overwhelming here as it is at the geysers and mudpots. Be sure to check out this cute town before you leave!

    The trail was very well-maintained but also quite crowded. Lots of people on this one! We missed the solitude that we've grown accustomed to on the other hiking trails. The most beautiful feature along the trail was Palette Spring (very colorful!). However, we were saddened to see that many of the travertine cascades, such as Minerva Terrace and Jupiter & Mound Terraces, were drying up (or already dried up). We hope that these formations can become "revived" again in the future.
    While in the area, the Upper Terrace Drive is a must-see. There are several interesting & beautiful formations such as Angel Terrace and Orange Spring Mound.
