The entire Yellowstone Park is an out-of-this-world experience, but the Upper Geyser Basin is surreal. Visitors should not miss it. Plan to spend time learning about the geyser formation, and also admiring their beauty.

This area is really spread out and it takes a lot longer to get from one point to another. Check in the Visitor Center to get times for possible eruptions. Old Faithful was not faithful for us time wise, but while we were waiting, we...More

We explored many areas in this area of Yellowstone. Each geyser and geothermal opening was different - the colors and behavior - the smells and heat. They are truly intriguing and mesmerizing. Most areas have great pulloffs and/or parking lot areas. Very cool

Although it was very cold on the day I visited this geyser, it was both beautiful and peaceful. Well worth the trip.

This is a large cluster of geysers that are easily reached from the parking lot. To keep safe, visitors use boardwalks to walk among the features.

You can walk the boardwalk on your own if you desire, but we took the morning Ranger Walk, which really enhanced the experience.

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
