We enjoyed hearing the 'Dragon roar' but the best part of our stop here was the visit of 6 bison rambling down the road and into the parking lot!

While Old Faithful and the Prismatic Pool are the most popular thermal attractions in the park, Mud Volcano ought to rank higher on the list. While some of the thermal features are beautiful and awe inspiring, these are amazing because they are kind of disgusting....More

Because of the Winter snow fall, the geysers will be full, more water features. However we have been there in the early Spring and the weather can get cold and snowy. West Yellowstone is a great little town to stay and hang... More
