This features about 2-4 bubbling ponds and about 3-5 colored ponds with a few cracks in the crust spurting water. Be careful with your kids and I hope you like the smell of sulfur!

We went here around 7:30pm and it was nice to not be crowded. Sapphire Pool was exquisite. We liked this area better than West Thumb or Norris.

The blue of these basins is a wonder to see. The fact that you can be so close to these springs is an under rated place.
