This geyser basin is most famous for Old Faithful but there's a lot of other thermal features to see here. We were lucky enough to see Old Faithful erupt three times just by luck - every time we stopped by the visitor center to go...More

Yea, we were amazed by these formations and the color they generate. We weren't so impressed with the smell of sulfur in the air, but then again, that's park part of the reason this place is called Yellowstone. You better be prepared for a LONG...More

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
