Liberty Cap

Posted by on April 4, 2014
Near the Fort is a 37-foot  formation known as Liberty Cap, so named in 1871  because of its resemblance to caps worn during the French Revolution. Inside is a hot spring that has remained open for hundreds of years causing mineral deposits to build up and enclose it. The first photo is from 1871, the second shows tourists in 1888, and the third shows Teddy Roosevelt during his 1903 tour of Yellowstone. LC1871LC1888touristsLCTR1903LCNow
