Runoff Terraces, Palette Spring Abstract
$100.00 – $1,500.00
Active travertine terraces at Palette Spring on the north end of Mammoth Hot Springs. As the water cools at the surface, some of it sinks back down, and some of it runs off in shallow rivulets in all directions of the compass. As the water cools at the edges of the pool and on the sinter terraces, bacteria and algae live and prosper producing a rainbow of colors.
