Close to Old Faithful and well worth a visit. There is a board walk and it is not far to walk. Sapphire pool is a highlight.

This was actually my favorite spot in Yellowstone. It has a variety of different geothermal features, each one unique in its own way. Very walkable.

We can walk over and see the colorful geysers , the blue one with clear view of the depth of the geyser is stunning. Not crowded , so easily walk around the park and see the geysers. Ample parking nearby. Must visit place

Our first geyser stop on our drive and no one was there in the early morning. Beautiful unobstructed views with a slight mist rolling off the fields. Quiet.

These sapphire pools are absolutely mesmerizing. So crystal blue and it leaves you wondering just how deep they go down. Stay on the path and don’t be tempted to go in for a closer look as we witnessed that throughout Yellowstone with foreign tourists. As...More
