  • It's the deepest of all walks of sight of various geysers on the boardwalk, and it takes about 30 minutes to walk, but I think it's worth seeing. It is the most colorful and beautiful. On the contrary, there is no geyser full of color so far. Of course, it's better to go on a sunny day during the hot afternoon when the steam doesn't get too hot.

  • The walk is worthwhile throughout the park to get out at the Morning Glory pool. Enjoy the colours you see and don't throw stones or debris in this beautiful pool. Read the Signs!

  • A miniature version of Grand Prismatic Spring. It takes about one mile of easy walk round trip from the Old Faithful, so it is not crowded. You get to enjoy the view of crystal-clear emerald pool and take as many detailed close-up pictures as you want. Do not throw anything into the pool because it will cause permanent damages to its ecosystem and the beautiful colors.
  • Still a convenient must - see thermal feature, but almost as much for the negative changes to this once glorious hot pool as for it's current paler presentation. An important site for its value in teaching about how uniformed or disrespectful human activity harms our natural treasures. 😪
