Unforgettable experience. Definitely a highlight of Yellowstone. We actually went three times during our stay in Yellowstone. The view is different at different times of the day. Don't miss this!

A must stop attraction!!! It is definitely worth the stop to get out and enjoy the spectacular views that lay before you. The only thing I can say is "breathtaking" and "amazing."
