another place in the Yellowstone National Park that Wolf Quest players should know ^^
and if dont: 
Amethyst Mountain is the highest peak and central part of a northwest – southeast trending ridge that lies between the Lamar River to the northeast and Deep Creek to the southwest within Park County, Wyoming. From northwest to southeast, this ridge consists of Specimen Ridge, Amethyst Mountain, and the Mirror Plateau in Yellowstone National Park. The nearest town is Silver Gate, Montana, which is 19.2 miles away.[2][3]
In 1872, it was named Amethyst Mountain by the United States Geological Survey for amethysts found on its summit.[4] This mountain is known for its abundance of amethystopal and exposures of well known and visited petrified forests.[5][6][7][8] The summit of Amethyst Mountain is traversed by Specimen Ridge Trail, which also traverses the south side of Specimen Ridge between Tower Junction and Soda Butte Creek and through the Yellowstone Petrified Forest.[9]
