If in Yellowstone this is and essential. Three different volcanic systems converge and the result is majestic, ethereal and unique. BUT the parking is terrible. You might be lucky with a space, we weren't, and had to park up on the highway and hike back.

This was so well worth a visit! The area is simply beautiful and very unique. The colors are truly magnificent. I don't think a visit to Yellowstone would be complete without spending a few minutes, at least, at this site.
