This was our first stop on our recent trip to Yellowstone. When we initially headed here, I figured we'd spend a couple hours, see Old Faithful twice and then see a couple of the smaller basins on the same day... turns out we spent the entire day here! We got the area about 20 minutes before an eruption of Old... More

Our favorite geyser basin. Go in the morning while it is still cool to see the steam rising from the basin. It is an otherworldly site!

Astonishing. This whole National Park is an experience I will never forget. One, we will go back, and spend an obscene amount of time here.

There's a number you can call to get an approximate time for Old Faithful's next eruption. Take time before or after seeing Old Faithful to enjoy all the other geysers. They are as or more interesting than Okd Faithful

One of the most important places in Yellowstone where you can see the most important geysers and the beautiful "Magic pool". The first thing you can do is see the Grand Geyser eruption time and Old Faithful Eruption in the visitor center and plan the 3 mile loop. Grand Geyser is in the middle of the loop and you have...

There are so many geysers, all one can do it be amazed by the power and pressure these bubbling caldrons are under. Some sound like steam engines when they huff, puff and bubble.

Seeing this and knowing what is happening is just amazing. Take your time to walk the boardwalks and see the whole area. AND be sure to read the signage that has some explanations of what you are seeing.

This is a great place to stop the car, get out and stretch your legs, and bring the camera. Great pictures of the geysers with plumes of sulpher and steam dotting the landscape. It's a magnificent site to behold and I highly recommend it. Take your time and park at one of the many pull offs to take advantage of... More

A visit to the Upper Geyser Basin requires a 3 mile walk. This was my elderly parents 3rd visit to YNP but we were unaware of changes made since 2010. They are not disabled and completed small hikes of ½ mile but a 3 mile walk made this area inaccessible to them.
