  • Biscuit Basin is an area of Yelowstone Park where you can admire beautiful pools of crystal clear water and colorful formations.

  • We loved this area as we stopped for the hike and to reach Mystic Falls. Over 2 miles round trip to view a spectacular waterfall. I enjoy the reward for the hike. Crowded area for parking and visitors as most of the park areas are in this part of the park. Put our feet in the river after the walk and it was icy cold but refreshing. Kids loved that part.
  • Best board walk in Yellowstone. You can get so close to several active geysers that erupt every 5 minutes or so. That turquoise pool is incredible. Parking lot is a bit small.
