Just stunning

Totally worth the trip. Just note that in November the roads are closed and it's a 50km bike ride from west gate to get there.

Take the opportunity to walk the boardwalks and asphalt trails to see Grand, Riverside, or Daisy. You will be glad you did!

The color of the basin is incredible how it's so barren like a wasteland then you have the many colors that stand out it's beautiful. If your driving the loop stop here and stair for awhile you won't regret it.

These pools are completely gorgeous!! They're so nice to see with the children, or just by oneself for relaxation.

Went here on a Tuesday and it was a good trip. Yellowstone is so unique in general with all of the hot spring activity. This is one of the most beautiful examples on display.

Stayed on the plank walkways. Lots of steam or vapors rising. Do the whole loop as there are different views you will not want to miss.
