  • We were not sure what to expect concerning the geysers and mud volcanoes, but they did not disappoint. 
  • Very interesting part of Yellowstone. My fiancée and I tried to hike every trail we could in this area and were not disappointed. It may have just been out timing but there did not seem to be as big a crowd in this area. Obviously be prepared for a bit of a smell :)
  • My son's favorite stop at Yellowstone. Had a good Ranger guided tour. There were multiple Buffalo living there. One was on the boardwalk for a bit and the Ranger had to keep people at a safe distance.
  • The trail was under repairment so we couldnt do it complete. In comparison with the rest of geysers and basins in YNP, this one was great but not in top 10.
  • Despite the sulfur smell that these 'mud volcanoes' release this was a great stop on the Yellowstone tour. There were three Buffalo all very close to the walkways. They are wild animals though, so respect and maintain Yellowstone's 25 yard distance wildlife policy.
  • Less crowded thermal feature than the geyser basins. The drive through Hayden valley has great animal viewing especially bison
