The most beautiful and incredible travertine terraces I would imagine you could ever see. They look surreal in the setting and are so unusual. Absolutely worth visiting wherever you are staying in Yellowstone. You can take a small scenic loop drive around the top of...More

We went early one morning when it was right around 10 degrees. We bundled up for the walk, and it was very chilly getting into the water, but once you were in the hot springs it was 100% worth all the cold. Bring towels and...More

Definitely worth a stop in Yellowstone, but much of it just looks like devastated wasteland. The terraces up the boardwalk are worth the uphill hike to see them.

As with all national parks, I truly believe that pictures do them zero justice. This place is so amazing. I do recommend going during off season, not sure when exactly that is, but we went in October and the park roads were still open. So...More
