Very stunning, more than I expected! It was amazing to walk the boardwalks to this basin, it's better to view personally, it's only a short stroll from Ole Faithful! You will be impressed, there's more to see.

While driving to get to Old Faithful we saw a crowd and decided to check this out- and boy were we pleasantly surprised! The geysers and thermal pools were ethereal. Experiencing those were the highlight of our trip and I would recommend everyone to visit these!

One of the many awesome stops to see geothermal wonders. Several long hikes here but also some shorter accommodating walks. All well designed and safe.

It is interesting to see the geysers in the upper basin but it is also just as interesting to see Old Faithful across the way. It is a pretty walk to the geyser basin. We had a stray buffalo cross the path right in front of us on our walk.

We went to see Old Faithful perform and we were not disappointed. However that is just a small part of this area as the walk over the thermal area is well worth doing to see the variety of thermal pools and geysers.

This was my husbands first time out on the boardwalks as we locals like to call the upper basin walkways around the pools & geysers and we had so much fun! We waited for over an hour to watch grand geyser go off and it was so awe inspiring as it shot up to some 200 feet and then we... More

Too many to remember them all but it was all just spectacular. You definitely want to stop and explore all of them.

I thought that once I saw a geyser they would ask look alike but I was wrong. If time allows get in as many as you can.

I had been here before a couple of years ago but we really lucked out this time a school class was there and a Dakota Indian was giving a history lesson regarding the mystical Indian belief of the mountain it was outstanding.
