Beautiful to look at but have some caution about you too... We overheard one of the professional guides talking about a dog that got loose and jumped in a hot pool. The dog died as did the teen that tried to rescue it. These thermal features really can kill the careless or unaware.

I enjoyed watching the Geyse and reading all the historical events and strolling and walking is very easy to do.

Lower Geyser Basin is another geyser to view when in the area of the Yellowstone National Park. These geysers are just amazing.

One of our first stops. I can't believe how access able and easy to get around it is. Great for people with limited mobility, they certainly would not miss out.

Amazing views. Like being on another planet. Really enjoyed walking on the boardwalks and seeing nature in action.

Fountain Paint Pots and Firehole Lake Drive are part of the Lower Geyser Basin and I have reviewed them separately. The Lower Geyser Basin covers about 11 square miles.

Compared with Norris and Upper Geyser Basin, I think that Lower Geyser basin may come close, but not quite to their level of interest. We did see Great Fountain Geyser erupt once on a previous visit – and that was certainly impressive.

This is the old faithful basin. Lots and lots of interesting geysers. Good viewing area and places to sit

The Upper Geyser basing is cooler, but this place is just as cool. The features here are always at work and the pools are very colorful.
