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.

Amazing experience! Go in the winter when you can be all bundled up and then shred your layers and sink into the warm waters! Sit outside in the snow in your bathing suit in an incredible area with remarkable views.

We visited the lower section and was blown away by the colours and patterns. Unique landscape and it is definitely worth the visit. Close up photos from above are really special.
