White Elephant Back Terrace is a massive rock formation found in the Upper Terrace Drive of Mammoth Hot Springs. The Upper Terrace Drive mostly features travertine terraces but does contain a few interesting rock formations such as this one. Mammoth Hot Springs in unique to other Yellowstone geyser basins in that limestone is the primary rock found in this basin.
