During our Snowmobile trip with Scenic Safaris we stopped at Biscuit Basin. There was snow everywhere but the pools were gorgeous. Saw one of the small pools erupt just about 4-6 feet above ground. Great trip.

Another don't miss sight. The water looks so clear and the other colors shining through. Looks so inviting but so hot.

As you walk around this pool, it's like so many others but yet different, you wonder how did it get so blue??? This is beautiful, and dangerous. The water is super-heated as well as including toxic minerals. Enjoy the view, don't become part of it.

There are so many geysers in Yellowstone, I can not even say which one of the best, but Biscuit Basin is really worth a visit. Colors are amazing!

the water is shockingly clear and it looks like you can peer down into the center of the earth. This is truly a photographers dream

This was such a pretty site. The color of the water was just beautiful. The smell was not that great, but worth stopping for a photo.

If you want an awesome view of Yellowstone, head to Biscuit Basin. We walked a ½ mile around the basin and then hiked up to Mystic Falls. It's a moderate hike but the view at the top is the best.

Great Yellowstone attraction. A must see while in Yellowstone. The colors for the water and pools were outstanding.

The boardwalk around the pools and geysers at Biscuit is really nice, with lots of interesting photos of ‘bobby soxers,’ dead trees turned white from exposure to bacteria and temperatures of the geysers. But be sure to continue up a one-mile trail around back that...More

Lovely little loop walk around the boardwalk with a few different things like mud pools as well. Different colours. And of course geysers. The dead trees make a dramatic effect too.
