“A WONDER ON EARTH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

An experience that makes youn witness nature at work. Fantastic to see Ye Olde Faithful still going strong. After who knows maybe a million yrears. And after all this time it is still remains faithful. Now be careful you do not wander very close to it or for that matter any of the other hot springs like Morning Glory or Geysers etc.The whole yellowstonne park is said to be a Caldera. That means a Volcaniv crater mouth. So if the whole Caldera erupts whilst you are within - well its jsut your luck. Besides these natural spots depicting the dormant ener within our planet there are animals to be seen like the Bison.If you could stretch yourimagination back in time and see the whole of the North American plains over run by these stupendpous herds and the dust and thump of their hooves, it seems so pitiable to see these few remnants now. Maybe in Africa the herds of Wildebeasts might suffer this same fate. Who know? Getting back to YNP do plan to spend a whole day there. It will be a memorable trip.Do not forget to take along your cameras, your videos etc so that this memorable event will remain etched in your memory.

“Cold...and Deep too”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The lake is cold all year, it is suitable for boating. Of the things we did in Yellowstone, this is clearly one that we could have skipped.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Even though we arrived rather late. We enjoyed seeing the buffalo and elk. We arrived just in time to see Old Faithful and were also able to see the Yellowstone lake and falls before dark. This is not the 1st time we have visited Yellowstone. It was rather cold and windy,But it was fun to see it all again and to be able to see our son in law and grandson enjoy it. It is nice to see the new trees after some of the big fires. But some area's are still rather bare. Hopefully the next time we the weather will be a little warmer and we will get an earlier start.

“It's a lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Yellowstone Lake itself is pretty much like any other lake, but the walkways next to it are full of boiling fumeroles and springs of fantastic colors.

Interesting wildlife and volcanic caldera formed by the collapse of land following a volcanic eruption 70,000 years ago.
