  • 上間歇泉區的黑沙盆地,有著一係列像寶石般的燦爛的間歇泉和彩泉,其中祖母綠池是裏面顏色最豐富最富盛名的一個泉,此處的彩泉各有特點,非常漂亮。  more »
  • About 2 km away, near old faithful. Crowded parking was tough going. Aim it is going across the River, there were fish, Osprey or Hawk.

  • On our ride from Yellowstone was one of our last stops. Not pressure, have some nice features to see.

  • This is a stop that any visitor must include in their tour of Upper Geyser Basin. Tourists began calling it Black Sand Basin because of the small fragments of black obsidian sand which cover portions of the basin. Here is a small collection of jewel-like geysers, and colorful hot springs. Emerald Pool is the most colorful and famous of these springs. Another colorful pool is Opalescent Pool. Cliff Geyser is an unusual geyser formed on the bank of Iron Creek and can erupt 30 to 40 feet high. You can either walk here from Old Faithful or drive here by Grand Loop Drive. A quick stop with many photo opportunities.
  • It was pretty good. Some of the attractions were difficult to see inside but three really stood out to me- Sunset Lake, Opalescent pool, and Emerald pool. If you do not like a being surrounded by a bunch of people, this is the place for you.
  • Pretty cool basin in Yellow stone park
  • This place is gorgeous. If you like nature and beauty, you have to visit.
  • The geysers there are pretty loud and spectacular.
