Their colors like the others around them leave no one indifferent. Yellowstone in general not only liked me but has loved me, there is wild beauty wherever you go.
가장 큰 가이저, 가장 푸른 가이저... 옐로스톤엔 수많은 가이저가 있지만 규모 면에서 여기가 중심입니다. 이 곳에서 순례를 시작하시면 좋습니다. 그만큼 인기가 높아 주차 경쟁이 심하니 상황에 따라서는 진입로 바깥 도로변에 주차하고 걸어가시는 게 나을 수도 있습니다. more »The biggest guy, the blueest guy... There are a lot of geists in Yellowstone, but in terms of scale, this is the center piece. You can start your pilgrimage here. Due to its popularity, it may be better to park and walk on the side of the road outside the driveway, depending on the situation.
Spectacular view of geysers and ponds. A must see when at Yellowstone. Don't forget to go to the lookout point across to have an even better view of the prismatic pond.
Location of the Excelsior Geyser Crater, Turquoise Pool, Opal Pool & Grand Prismatic Spring. One of the best stops on our recent Yellowstone adventure. Please don't write on the bacteria mats.
