Upon leaving your hotel in Jackson Hole, you will stop at Big Thumb by Yellowstone Lake. The magma underneath Yellowstone park heats rain water and melting snow at about 8 miles below the earth surface. The water finds its way back to the surface of the earth, in the form of mud volcano, fumarole, warm and hot springs. Your tour route will lead you to Hayden Valley, home to wolves, Grizzlies, buffalo, and even bald eagles.
Once you leave Norris Geysers, the next stop will be the Fountain Paint Pots. Here you will find mud with doses of chemicals bubbling, warm springs and sky blue warm water. The deep blue water is as result of depth of the spring and the color of the sky. You will stop at the Grand Prismatic Springs.
Old Faithful will be your last stop on your Yellowstone lower loop tour. The warm geyser shoots out water from its vent every 90 minutes, plus or minus 10.
