  • Nice but no water left there for good color pictures
  • Absolutely beautiful. I wish they had bikes to rent at the start of this path. Long walk.
  • This has always been my favorite geyser since I was a kid. Unfortunately, my parents always thought it was too far of a walk. Now that I'm grown up, "I" make the decisions. It's well worth the walk.
  • Completely beautiful! The coloration is amazing, from dark orange to brilliant blue. It really does look like it does in pictures! Bit if a walk (or bike) to get there, but worth it, and you'll see fascinating thermal features along the way. It's a real shame people throw trash in it--it changes the color and makes it less interesting. As an extra bonus, there's a bathroom and picnic table near the pool.
  • This is an amazing pool. We came 9 years ago and it had a lot more color in it than it did this time. The park sign said it lost some color due to people tossing trash and other items into it. It's still great to look at, but not as colorful as it once was. Some of the greens around the edge have turned to blues. Now it looks more like some of the other springs/pools.
