You will be amazed of how nature can display its colors in these different springs (pot holes) filled with hot water and surrounded by mini geysers. Each one has its own charm and there are wood like paths that will take you to them. This area is by the Yellowstone Lake. A must see place.

Upper Geyser Basin is a "must see" at Yellowstone! It is beautiful! The pictures turn out absolutely gorgeous too! Beware that this is a very, very popular tourist spot. It can be difficult to find a parking spot but if you park on the side of the road, you will find that the walk to the geyser is actually shorter... More

Wild and Trekking gave us a tour of Yellowstone's tourist attractions when we had to leave our backpacking trip a day early because of weather.

Two words sum up the problem. Road Construction. Lack of parking and way to many cars parking along the road way. You could not get into most of the basin area.

The upper Geyser Basin is filled with .... you guessed right: Geysers! The Geysers arte plentiful and diverse and truly are a sight not to be missed. If you visit on a crisp Fall morning you will welcome the heat emanating from the Geysers.

The upper geyser basin is a most see location. The entire Yellowstone park is a must see/bucket list location. The colors are amazing. Very impressive! Lots of people, parking can be a problem. The best suggestion is go early in the morning

It is an easy, flat walk & there are lots of interesting pools & geysers to see on this boardwalk. It is worth the time to take a look. Keep you eyes open as there are birds, squirrels, marmots etc. around this area.

The walking around to see all the geysers is a fantastic way to spend your time in this wonderful park!

If the world's densest concentration of geysers isn't enough reason to make you visit the Upper Geyser basin, then go to see the beautiful hot springs, like Morning Glory Pool, and the color mats of bacteria around the geothermally heated water.

Beautiful walk, great pictures. The parking can be difficult because the parking lot was blocked and we could only park on the road. Can be a long walk. May geysers to see on the trail.
