White Dome Geyser
The sun has set and not much colors, we went to the nearby White Dome Geyser and it erupted when we arrived!
Great Fountain Geyser
For sunset, we tried our luck at Great Fountain Geyser. We were the only ones there and there was a lot of mosquitoes! The reflections were amazing there, however, not much of a sunset. It would be stunning with a beautiful sunset!
The Silex Spring looked like some flakes are breaking off the edges.
I love the shades of blue in the Sapphire Pool, the name really matches!
The milky turquoise-colored is the Wall Pool where it is located right across the river from the parking lot of Biscuit Basin.
My 2nd most favorite hot spring/pool in Yellowstone - Morning Glory. The colors are extremely beautiful!
We turned on the loop to Daisy Geyser where it was predicted to erupt in the next 15 minutes so we sat and waited. The prediction timing was pretty accurate!
I was sitting in front of the Grotto Geyser for photos and all suddenly I heard splashing water sound; it was eruption while my photos being taken LOL. Awesome!
The left one is the Catfish Geyser whereas the right one is Giant Geyser, last eruption was back in 2010!
Another one that I can't correlate the name - Beauty Pool but the colors are vivid.
I don't get how it gets its name - Economic Geyser but I guess it has to do with the color like a penny?
West Triplet Geyser
West Triplet Geyser, unlike other geysers that erupt and blow water up in the air in some unknown intervals of time, this one is constantly splashing hot water out.
Love this little Belgian Pool with the vivid bright yellow color, it also has a funnel that makes you wonder how deep it really goes?
Definitely not the spa you want to try out, the water is boiling (dangerously boiling) hot!
Heart Spring, can you correlate the shape to the human heart?
I love the crystal clear turquoise water of the Depression Geyser.
The name, Beehive Geyser, really fits its appearance! We didn't get to see it erupts though!
Little Anemone Geyser
The Anemone Geyser located in the Upper Geyser Basin; it looked dull unlike the other hot springs.
Old Faithful Geyser
Go in the visitor center where they posted the prediction time of Old Faithful’s next eruption. They said their prediction accuracy is 90% with with plus or minus 10 minutes of the predicted time! We got there half an hour before the predicted time and already filled with people waiting for it to erupt. The wait was painful on my butt and my hands LOL as my finger was on the shutter button ready to click any moment on high-speed shutter mode! The eruption lasted for few minutes so you'll get the shots you want!
Opal Pool - the smaller version of Grand Prismatic Spring. It is still colorful and without the crowds!
Grand Prismatic Spring
The colors were AMAZING! Even the smoke was blue! I finally have seen the Grand Prismatic Spring, it was much bigger and colorful than what I imagined. The wind was totally co-operating that we could see the colorful spring clearly! The only regret was that the hiking trail to go up for the aerial view was closed due to the construction of the new observation platform so we couldn’t get the iconic aerial views of the colorful spring 🙁 However, it was still incredible though!
Excelsior Geyser Crater
The first hot pool we saw was Excelsior Geyser Crater, the smoke covered the pool that it was barely visible. We waited till the wind blow and for the few seconds, we were able to have a look at the turquoise-colored pool.
You need to be early for dinner otherwise, you’ll be stuck in the queue for a LONGGGGG time! The food was mediocre at its best and expensive! The cafeteria divided into two lines…one for American food and one for Asian stir-fried and both are staffed by college students. Sometimes you can see the inefficiency of the place for such simple food sigh. Our stir-fried box…almost tasteless so you need the sauce!
We arrived at Old Faithful and we decided to have lunch at Geyser Grill first and again we made the right decision because once we had lunch, a bus load of people came in so the place was filled! The food was expensive and not that great as like inside other national parks, it was cafeteria style, casual but at least fast!
