These areas look like something out of a science fiction movie. Beautifully stunning colorization and formations. A very unique area to visit that will be remembered during your visit to Yellowstone.

I liked visiting this amazing geyzer. It's not the biggest but it's sure one of the best in the park

Try getting there in different weather conditions: cloudy, sunny... morning, afternoon... Colours will vary considerably but the great atmosphere will remains! Very nice frozen schemes in the winter

Visited it in Winter, which is supposedly not the best time (colored hot springs are partly hidden in mist), but this is still a lovely place with a lot of wildlife - easily observable.

There are so many thermal features beyond the one that everyone knows, Old Faithful. You are able to follow the boardwalk to walk between the different features. Whether you see particular ones erupting depends entirely on timing, but there are so many fascinating things to...More

Great tour of the heart of Yellowstone with Old Faithful, Morning Glory and several other geysers. All can be accessed from the boardwalk. We had little kids and it was great as we could use the stroller.

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

Upper Geyser Basin has the world's largest concentration of geysers and is home to 150 geysers, including the famous Old Faithful. Eruption time of 5 of the largest geysers can be predicted - Old Faithful, Castle, Daisy, Grand and Riverside. There is approximately 1.5 mi/2.4...More

What a beautiful place, but really crowded. To avoid the crowds get there SUPER early in the morning, or right before sunset.

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
