Photographer's Note

The Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces: Here you can observe Mother Nature going about the business of mixing and matching heat, water, limestone, and rock fractures to sculpt the area. This is one of the most colorful areas in the park; its tapestries of orange, pink, yellow, green, and brown, formed by masses of bacteria and algae, seem to change colors before your eyes. The mineral-rich hot waters that flow to the surface here do so at an unusually constant rate, roughly 750,000 gallons per day. (Online Source)

Opal Terrace is one of the hot springs terraces in the Mammoth. I will show you other terraces in different shapes and colors later.
