  • This is a bit of a quieter place in the park. Everyone's heads for Old Faithful and misses these beautiful pools. They had to be my my favorite pools in the park. The contrast in the first three big pools, to each other and against the natural river next to them is stunning. The colors were the prettiest blues. I loved Biscuit Basin.
  • This is a seemingly unadvertised part of Yellowstone but we really loved it. A must see. Many small and active geysers with lots of character. Very few visitors when we were there and when places like Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic were crowded. Easy to park and walk around. Highly recommended!
