This was such a pretty site. The color of the water was just beautiful. The smell was not that great, but worth stopping for a photo.

If you want an awesome view of Yellowstone, head to Biscuit Basin. We walked a ½ mile around the basin and then hiked up to Mystic Falls. It's a moderate hike but the view at the top is the best.

Lovely little loop walk around the boardwalk with a few different things like mud pools as well. Different colours. And of course geysers. The dead trees make a dramatic effect too.

This is well worth a visit. It has a great walk which can be extended by visiting a small waterfall. Like many places at peak times there may be queue for parking.

If you only have time for one basin, stop here. Two easy loops with great variety of pools and geysers. Very close to Old Faithful area.
