The colorful and beautiful Grand Prismatic Spring!

One of the coolest sites to visit in Yellowstone, the Grand Prismatic Spring! Aside from the horrible traffic around the area and the lack of parking, if you’re lucky enough to park close, it’s well worth the time to walk in awe of the colorful pool.

When in Yellowstone, go to Grand Teton National Park also!

Another national park just to the south of Yellowstone! It would seem that a lot of people who visit Yellowstone also make the trip to the Grand Teton National Park too, and vice versa. Fortunately, we have the America the Beautiful interagency pass so we didn’t have to worry about paying to get into either park. Grant Teton had a different vibe to it probably because it’s so close to the Teton mountain range. We also noticed that there weren’t as many RVs as Yellowstone!

The Golden Gate of Yellowstone!

Most people probably pass through the Golden Gate Canyon without realizing that there’s a name and history around it. Located just south of Mammoth Hot Springs, you’ll find Rustic Falls right off the road too.

Hot springs galore at Mammoth Hot Springs!

Located in Mammoth, Wyoming in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park, the Mammoth Hot Springs terraces are spectacles that’s so out of this world, it’s like walking on the surface of an alien planet. Put on your most comfortable shoes because there is an upper and lower part of the terraces. You’ll also want to walk around the small town and grab a bite to eat at the local general store and restaurants too!

Exploring the geysers and pools of Biscuit Basin!

Biscuit Basin, like the other basins, showcase many geysers and pools with a boardwalk to use for viewing them. This one in particular runs next to the Firehole River and has these biscuit-like deposits from which it gets its name!

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone!

We woke up super early to go to Hayden Valley to view wildlife, but with rain and thunderstorms all morning long, we saw nothing! So, on to the next best thing nearby, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone! This is where you can view the iconic Upper and Lower Falls.
