I'm not sure why other geysers have their own heading by Daisy doesn't. In fact, we had no idea about her large following until we met a fan almost in tears since the eruption had just finished and she wanted so much to see it. Daisy is aging and not what she use to be but even with that caveat,... More

This was a nice spot but extremely busy like most things in Yellowstone. Beautiful colours and clear water. Must see if you go to YS but parking is limited.

Geysers Old Faithful and Morning Glory are found here with hundreds of other geysers and hot springs to view in the Upper Basin. There are two miles of boardwalks leading from around Old Faithful including a pleasant mountain hike to an observation point providing panoramic views of the site. These basins also provide an important habitat for wildlife including Bison,... More

The basin is the home of old faithful and morning glory. It is about a 3 mile roundtrip hike from old faithful to morning glory. Both are spectacular. For old faithful there is really no reason to get crowded on the benches. Instead, go to the far side and get the same view without all of the rude tourists. There... More

Of all of the boardwalks around geysers we did, this was my favorite. We did the whole walk down to Morning Glory pool. It was hotter than we had expected, so we did wish we had brought some water. A lot of different colored pools and geysers. We saw quite a few going off. Also spotted a hawk hanging out... More

We were mesmerized by the beauty of this thermal amalgam of springs, bubblers, vent holes and other unique geographic features. The photographs should speak for themselves. The boardwalks are expertly placed, so please observe the caution signs and don't do dumb things like stepping off. Many people lose situational awareness as they attempt to get the perfect shots, so please... More

There are so many things to see here. Many different types of geothermal features and lots of wildlife. The farther you walk along the boardwalk, the fewer people you see. If you are into natural beauty, this part of Yellowstone has lots to offer. By the time you've made it here, you have likely seen numerous bison. There is an... More

The Upper Geyser Basin loop provides a glimpse of various aspects of geothermal activities - geysers, mud pots, and paint pots.
