The many and varied attractions of the park include cliffs of black obsidian (volcanic glass); Yellowstone and Jackson lakes; Electric Peak (10,991 feet/3,350 meters), the park's highest mountain; and thousands of steam vents and hot springs, including Mammoth Hot Springs with its terraces of travertine.
