Amazing springs, including the Grand Prismatic (which you can see better from a hill across the way). But STAY ON THE BOARDWALK or you will live (or not) to regret it.

Well worth a stop here. In addition to Grand Prismatic, there are other features here too. The boardwalk makes the area very easy to access, though it is not flat.

In my opinion, the midway geyser basin offers the most diverse collection of geysers, springs, and mud holes. If you must pick one geyser area, this is the one.

Even in a short walk you can see several amazing sights if the selfie-takers and group picture takers let you through! Wish we had had time for the hike to view Grand Prismatic Spring from above.

Not far from Old Faithful, and less crowded. The boardwalk takes you around several interesting thermal features.

Midway geysers are amazing and Grand Prismatic is my absilute favorite. I recommend getting here early as it gets extremely crowded especually around noon. The geysers are amazing here

Went in the off season when the trails were closed due to bear activity. Was looking forward to viewing from hill to get the best view. On the boardwalk, the same level as the basin, makes it a little difficult to appreciate. Colors were vivid...More

You will see what evolved in billion of years on Mother Earth. Stunning colours all caused by bacteria, algae and microscopic organisms. The views are stunning and picture perfect. Take some time to view from your eyes rather than clicking million pictures lol.

It is a good place for a short walk to see a few very spectacular geysers. You should definitely plan a stop here.
