Old Faithful Geyser Loop Trail

The Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is probably the most famous geyser in the world! What I never knew before traveling there, is there is an entire network of boardwalk trails running in a loop (of sorts) all through this area which is called the Upper Geyser Basin. It's a small area with the highest concentration of geysers ...

Grand Prismatic Geyser in Yellowstone

Grand Prismatic Geyser is perhaps the most well known geyser in Yellowstone, (besides Old Faithful I suppose)! And... why wouldn't it be, the colors are so unreal you feel like you may just be on another planet! We went midday and the light was very harsh, so I'd recommend morning or early evening for the best photography opportunity. Whenever you ...

10 Tips for Visiting Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is thought to be the very first National Park in the world, and it's also the home of the biggest supervolcano on this continent! The whole area is a true wonderland from 10,000' peaks to erupting geysers, and everything in between! There's a little something for everyone in Yellowstone, and it's the most diverse in terms of ...

Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park

The hike up Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park will take you up to the lofty elevation of 10,223 feet! A wide, well maintained trail leads to the top with expansive views in all directions. We hiked this trail after a full day visiting most of the geyser trails, and it was the perfect way to take a break from ...

Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park

Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park is a gigantic travertine terraced hot spring near the north entrance of the park. The whole nature of this hot spring changes from week to week with different parts of the spring being more active at different times - so every time you go there it will look a little different from the ...

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone National Park is definitely awe inspiring - the water literally roars as it crashes over the cliffs into the canyon below! There are a couple of vantage points to view this canyon, and each one offers a unique view. We did the trails on both sides of the canyon, and we really enjoyed both. When we ...

Norris Geyser Basin Loop

We almost didn't end up hiking Norris Geyser Basin because we were already exhausted from a day of sight seeing! But so I'm glad we did because this loop is different from everything else we did that day! There is such a variety of geysers and pools to see, and it was way less crowded than the more popular attractions ...

Porcelain Geyser Basin

The Porcelain Geyser Basin shares the same trailhead as the Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. We didn't even know about it when we visited, and happened upon it by chance! We did the entire Norris trail loop, and saw a trail branching off with a sign reading Porcelain Geyser Loop, so we decided to go for it as ...

Fountain Paint Pots Trail in Yellowstone National Park

You'll see 16 different sights on the Fountain Paint Pots Trail in just .6 miles! All this beauty in one small area also makes this trail insanely popular, (this is the case with most of the geyser trails in Yellowstone). The best solution is to avoid the hours between 10am-4pm when these areas are the most crowded. We knew the ...
