Of course, Old Faithful is the highlight of this area but there is so much to see here. We pretty much hiked the entire area which is longer than we expected. Be sure to bring water with you, especially on a hot summer day. Waking...More

We went up to the observation point and spent about 45 seconds taking photos as quickly as possible (you may be able to see the mini swarms of mosquitoes in the images!) but it really was insanely beautiful!

This is one of the most spectacular, colorful, and amazing experiences that you will find in Yellowstone. It is one thing to see the advertising pictures, it is quite another to see it up close. I recommend taking the hike to the top for the...More

It is a great walk to see the geysers. There are shorter and longer trails you can take. It is so much to 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!
