16 Places to visit in Yellowstone.

Emerald Pool in the Black Sand Geyser Basin is a hot spring with green, orange, yellow colors.  It slightly changes colors by the seasons.  You can get perfect pictures of it on a hot summer day.

Grand Prismatic Spring in the middle geyser basin has what you may describe rainbow colors.  It is 371 feet long.  Bacteria survives by the edges of the pool.  You may take pictures from the board walk or from the top of the hill overlooking it.

Excelsior Geyser releases 4000 gallons of hot water a minute into the Fire Hole River.  Temperatures could reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit.  Downstream at the Fire Hole Canyon there is a natural swimming pool some people utilize in the months of July and August, thanks to the hot water from the Excelsior Geyser.

Beehive Geyser in the upper geyser basin goes off for about 4 minutes and 50 seconds.  It is estimated to go upwards of 190 feet high.  It is located across the Fire Hole River adjacent to the Old Faithful Geyser.

Old Faithful Geyser goes off every ninety minutes plus or minus ten.  Hot water gushes out of it its silica vent for about two minutes and steadily fizzles out.  There are about five hundred geysers in Yellowstone.

Fountain Paint Pots in the Lower Geyser Basin has two beautiful features you can see.  Silex Spring is deep blue most of the year.  Driving on the road, you can see it.  The Fountain Paint Pots are formed by a combination of bacteria activity, water, soil and heat from underneath the Yellowstone Volcanic chamber.  Red Spouter fumarole is just few yards next to the Fountain paint pots.

Steamboat Geyser is in the Norris Geyser Basin.  From the Ranger station walk about a mile in trail leading to the geyser.  It expels water from its chamber infrequently.  However, when it does, water goes up to three hundred feet in the air.

Big Thumb Geyser Basin and Lake Yellowstone.  Big Thumb has mud pots and hot springs.  Lake Yellowstone has vents which release unseen hot water into the lake.

Fire Hole Drive off of Fire Hole River is a beautiful scenic road with a spectacular volcanic cliff and water just by the road.  Drive up to the rapids and and water falls.  You may even park your vehicle by the water falls and take pictures or you may prefer to swim upstream between the months of July and August.

Brink of the Upper Falls in the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, is best seen on a sunny afternoon.  It may have a rainbow or two.  The roaring water in front of you from the Upper Falls is extremely impressive.  It is powerful and clean.

Huckleberry Ridge in the Upper Loop of Yellowstone is a volcanic cliff, part of what erupted 2.1 million years ago.  Yellowstone has had three explosions in the past, this is one of them.

Mammoth Hot Springs are giant basins of hot water which is formed of calcium and other minerals.  The springs constantly (in comparison to geysers) move from one spot to another.

Petrified tree near Tower Falls is of few trees of its kind remaining in Yellowstone.  It soaked in chemicals at some point in time and still retains it thousands of years later.

Tower Falls a short walk past the gift shop is a long slim water drop which ends in Yellowstone River.  The road heading north from Tower Falls leads you to a breath taking vertical basalt cliff, just before Calcite Spring.

Undine Falls on the way to Mammoth Hot Springs after Hellroaring Mountain and just past Lava Creek is beautiful.  You may spend a few minutes there to take in the magnificence of the mountain just in front.

Dragon’s Mouth near the Mud Volcano sends out deep humming noise every few seconds.  It’s energy comes from the Yellowstone magma.

Yellowstone tour reviews

Yellowstone tour reviews of Yellowstone Tours From Jackson Hole/Yellowstone Safari Tours samples are as follows:

“Excellent experience travelling with Moses to Yellowstone National Park a few days ago. Great luck with the animal sightings – elks crossing the road, two times grizzlies (including one 200 meters away feeding on carcass), and four times seeing bison (each time getting closer). Yellowstone highlights were a well timed Old Faithful, a colorful

Grand Prismatic Spring, and an unusual muddy flats. Moses was very engaging, informative , and helpful so our family of three from the Philippines celebrating a special occasion was more than pleased.”

“My family and I booked a 1/2 day morning tour in January. It was awesome! Moses was a great tour guide. We saw moose, elk, bighorn sheep and bison. Moses knew exactly where to go and gave us a beautiful tour of the area as well. He was informative, very knowledgeable and relaxed. We would definitely use him again for any tours in the future. My husband and i had our 13 yo and 4 yo which is the only reason we didn’t book a longer trip. Very highly recommend!!!”

“What a pleasant surprise this tour was! And Moses, you were the best! Tour was worth every single penny and I would do it all over again just to see all the animals and hear the history of the area.”
