Soda Butte

Soda Butte Cone
Soda Butte Cone Orientation Map    

Lamar Valley is not known for its thermal activity. That is why this mostly extinct hot spring looks so out of place standing all by itself with vast valleys and rugged mountain peaks in the background, and sometimes surrounded by bison. The smell of thermal gas is a sign that there is still some thermal activity around Soda Butte. However, the activity is minimal compared to the activity that must have created this massive travertine cone many years ago. There is a pullout on the Northeast Entrance Road right next to Soda Butte.
