Lower Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park

Lower Geyser Basin hosts a flurry of thermal activity, creating impressive spectacles across Yellowstone's landscape. Spanning over 29 sq km (18 sq mi), the geyser discharges more hot water than any other feature in the park. Watch as hot steam nearing 100 C (212 F) shoots up into the sky, reaching heights of 45.6 m (150 ft). A stark demonstration of nature's power and beauty, the area can be explored on decked trails meandering between active spots.

  • Nothing to complain. This place is just amazing. You can see huge smoke coming out of geyser far away. Most geysers are close to each other so you don't need to walk far to see all of them. It also has several hot spring pools. The constant erupting geyser here makes your life easy to take videos
  • Was beautiful!
  • From the 駆 Fountain area, the car continued south through the right side to the west to the mouth, and soon came to Lower Geyser Basin This area landscape is quite special. Along the walking road, the right side to see is the clear bottom of the blue-green hot spring pool. Moving forward, the surface color gradually turned into dark brown or tetsu sanitary color, and hot cave more and more small or even only left the nozzle, but I I have a breath. Continue to move forward, the landscape changes, the geomorphology opened our until the foot of off mountain, but a dry and bad landscape, but there are several important vector for large spray mouth, spewing espresso espresso white smoke and sound. Or the Kidman or heat springs of the land under the geomorphology are gradually being transferred. There are not many visitors, strolling up a leisurely view of the fountain.
