Take a meander along the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces and through time to learn how ancient seas, continental shifts, ice ages and volcanism have created the beautiful, otherworldly springs that lay before us today--and learn why it could look different tomorrow! We’ll take a deep dive into the natural history of one of Yellowstone’s most dynamic thermal features. Join us for an informative, fun look with Ashea, who’s been watching these features morph since the mid-90’s when she first moved to Yellowstone and lived adjacent to the Terraces. Whether you’ve visited the Mammoth Hot Springs before, or never laid eyes on them, this trip is sure to delight your sense of wonder at one of Earth’s most marvelous sites.
Ashea has spent twenty-five years exploring and sharing the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, helping people connect to a wild landscape and to themselves. She has led all ages and interests through Yellowstone including children’s programming, driving snow coaches, skiing and hiking deep into the backcountry, geyser gazing and road-based wildlife watching. In the fall of 2020, she added virtual touring to her array of guiding options and has thoroughly enjoyed sharing Yellowstone in this unique and meaningful way. She lives 100 yards from Yellowstone National Park’s boundary with her ecologist husband, where they own an ecological consulting business and small educational guiding company (https://www.yellowstone.education). Immersing in Yellowstone and the surrounding public lands with their daughter on skis and foot is where they find nourishment.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Yellowstone with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Yellowstone. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.
