The splendor of the geysers and the wilderness are breathtaking and awesome. Truly one of a kind. Only Monument Valley ,a Navaho park,, can beat this park

If you have limited time here don’t hang about for old faithful, there are far more interesting and fascinating things to see. You don’t get close to old faithful and the cone is nothing special in any case. Instead go and see the impressive cones...More

The geyser pools really are as colorful as they look like on all those pictures. Simply amazing to see. Don‘t miss it. Parking can be a problem, especially during August. So, make sure to be there early ... before all other tourists and the busses.

How can it be? Well gather a bit of history before you go or while your there so you can learn. There are many information areas, so stop and read. Beautiful! All of it!

There is a lot of geysers to see here, much more than Old Faithful. Given the size, plan to spend a few hours here to tour around and see the various geysers. Note, that you can call in to figure out when Old Faithful will...More

Just incredible area, with geysers, hot springs, and mud pots, everywhere, and boardwalks to see them up close. Surprisingly colorful, as the bacteria, of different colors, bubbles up from its petrie dish cauldron. Great science lesson for folks know s of all ages!!

An unbelievable area. Beautiful pools of such hot water, minerals and bacteria. A wonder of colors varying in each pool.

Upper Geyser Basin is a fascinating place to spend a day. Visit the website called geysertimes.org to get the latest estimates on when certain geysers are expected to spout off and plan your walking route accordingly. If you visit no other places in Yellowstone, at...More

Some experienced visitors say that mid winter is the best time as few visitors at that time and everything will be via ski! Plus the park is even more enchanting in winter!

Hi Daniel: This is kind of a loaded question. That is if you are to go directly from Old Faithful up to the Morning Pool (near the end of the upper geyser basin) it is 1.5 miles. Depending on how often you stop, how fast... More
