Probably the most impressive geyser basin in Yellowstone

with its unique colors (blue, orange, red, etc), you feel like you've just landed on the moon. Take your time to walk all around.

Well worth a stop - there are lots of these areas to stop and look at hot springs, geysers etc. Easy to park, boardwalks etc

This was my favorite spot from our first day in the park. It feels like you are walking on another planet! Very cool and a nice easy walk around the area.

Grand Prismatic was an easy walk up the boardwalk but was hard to fully view from that level due to the steam

We loved this area and spent a good deal of time there. We thought the Grand Prismatic Spring was so beautiful,large and colorful! The wAlk is relatively short, was a bit crowded but well worth our time! You have to do this one!

Yes it get steamy here after rainfall. The prize is Grand Prismatic at the very top. This area is the best to go. Wide Angle lens for best results. Not particularly busy considering what it has to offer. Read my review on Grand Prismatic.

This to me is the best thing to see in Yellowstone. We had a great time, and took our time looking at all of the springs and geysers. Each one was more beautiful then the last. Ending with Grand Prismatic Spring which to me is the best thing to see in the park. We had a great time and it... More

Turquoise Pool was my favorite feature at Midway. Grand Prismatic Spring may have been if there was a way to view it from above.
