William Henry Jackson, At the Mammoth Hot Springs, Gardiner River, 1871, courtesy East Hampton Library

Thomas Moran saw Yellowstone for the first time in the summer of 1871. A few months earlier he had been asked to rework sketches submitted as illustrations for an article on Yellowstone published in Scribner's Magazine. Titled "The Wonders of Yellowstone," this article was the first extensive description published in the East of the landscape long rumored to be "the place where hell bubbled up."
