Went in the off season when the trails were closed due to bear activity. Was looking forward to viewing from hill to get the best view. On the boardwalk, the same level as the basin, makes it a little difficult to appreciate. Colors were vivid...More

You will see what evolved in billion of years on Mother Earth. Stunning colours all caused by bacteria, algae and microscopic organisms. The views are stunning and picture perfect. Take some time to view from your eyes rather than clicking million pictures lol.

It is a good place for a short walk to see a few very spectacular geysers. You should definitely plan a stop here.

The main attraction here is the Grand Prismatic Spring but be sure to walk around and enjoy the other thermal features too!

This is probably my favorite of the geyser basins - in fact the Grand Prismatic was my main reason for coming to Yellowstone. There is some great stuff here! Parking can be a struggle, but it's worth it. We had to park a little ways...More

Interesting geysers here where the steaming water flows into the river below. This is also where the Grand Prismatic Spring is. Can be a busy place, but worth the stop.

This is amongst other geysers and the grand prismatic spring. The colours are truly amazing and the patterns they make are so unique. Beyond words. You will end up spending more time deleting your photos than taking them.
