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

The Midway Geyser Basin has the Grand Prismatic Spring, which is probably the reason for people visiting Yellowstone. It has a 0.8mi/1.3 km boardwalk and is also home to the Excelsior Geyser, Opal Pool and Turquoise Pool. My husband and I came here around 4pm...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.

Depending on what you want to see, I found the Midway Geyser Basin to be my favorite. It has the Grand Prismatic Spring which is a must to see and several others features like bubbling mud pots.

This is the location of the Grand Prismatic Spring, though you may not get the best view if it is cool/cold out, to much steam.
