I used to live in that area, roughly midway between soda springs and the south entrance of Yellowstone.
There are many geothermal features all over that area.
Just west of soda springs is lava hot springs, a town that has some great hot pools.
Just east of soda springs, between Thayne and Afton WY are more hot springs with a very strong sulphur smell.
If you travel north to the east side of Palisade reservoir there are several hot springs scattered around and there's another group of hot springs
below the surface of the water on the west side of the reservoir near Alpine, WY.
If you travel further north from there, there's Heisse hot spring, and between Alpine and Jackson hole, there are a series of hot springs near Hoback
junction near the snake river golf club, as well as just east of Hoback and also north of Hoback before you get to Jackson.
I'm no geologist, but I'm pretty confident that this whole area I just outlined is part of the Yellowstone geothermal complex.
The area does get a fair amount of eqs, at least while I lived there, especially on the Wyoming side of the border.
Monsanto has a phosphorus mining operation on the north side of town in soda springs. Lots of sulphur deposits and phosphate in the ground there
