TOWER-ROOSEVELT TO MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Part 7
A classic drive that runs along the Blacktail Plateau, the section from Tower-Roosevelt to Mammoth Hot Springs offers its fair share of memorable landscapes. Whether you conclude or originate in Mammoth, it is a place you should allow a little extra time to experience.
In 1886, the United States Army was called in to help protect the new Park from poachers and abuse. After five harsh winters in rudimentary barracks, they began construction of more permanent buildings. A host of clapboard-sided buildings sprang up, as well as structures fabricated of native stone built by Scottish masons. The area then known as Fort Yellowstone is the settlement of Mammoth you pass through today.
