You can’t go to Yellowstone National Park without stopping to see Old Faithful erupt! “Old Faithful, the most popular geyser to be seen at Yellowstone National Park, attracts millions of visitors each year from around the world. This famous geyser was first named in 1870, according to Wikipedia. Now, 148 years later, Old Faithful remains true to its name by its constant, daily eruptions. While this is a must-see geyser, crowds can be overwhelming at times.” Click here for some tips to help you as you plan your visit to Old Faithful! | Source: Vezzani Photography
Upper Geyser Basin
Since Old Faithful only erupts every 44 – 125 minutes, visiting Upper Geyser Basin next to Old Faithful is a great way to spend your time! With wooden walkways, hiking around Upper Geyser Basin is easy and fun! You will get to see some amazing hot springs and formations along your way, each one offering something different and unique.
Grand Prismatic Spring
Located off of 191, the Grand Prismatic Spring is absolutely amazing! The variance in colors and the hot steam that pours off of it is unreal. Each color represents a different temperature where unique bacteria can grow. It is truly stunning. Be sure to stay on the path as you walk past this monstrosity! You will also see smaller hot springs along this hiking path. Click here for more information on how to visit the Grand Prismatic Spring!

Great Fountain Geyser
Watching the sun set over the Great Fountain Geyser is something you will never forget! This geyser usually erupts just before sunset, filling several pools all around it with water. The water reflects the sky above and is just beautiful! Click here for more information about how to find and photograph the Great Fountain Geyser at sunset!

Lamar Valley is the perfect location to watch and photograph wildlife – especially if you go in the early morning or early evening hours. Be prepared to stop your car as bison often cross the road driving through Lamar Valley. There are several pull outs and plenty of beautiful locations in Lamar Valley! This scenic drive is located in the northern section of Yellowstone National Park.
Madison Campground is a lovely place to stay at Yellowstone National Park. Bear Safety is a must as they often roam the campground at night. Do not be surprised if a Bison walks right through the campground. In addition to tall lodgepole pine trees and seclusion, the sunsets just around the corner from the campground near the amphitheater are spectacular! You might even see Elk grazing in the meadow and meandering in the curving river at twilight! While there are no showers in the campground, you can take some pay showers at several other locations in the park (including near Old Faithful and at the campground next to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone).

If you are lucky enough to go in the spring, Mount Washburn will be loaded with wildflowers. You can view Mount Washburn from the Tower Fall Campground or you can drive up to it and hike to the top! This moderate hike is 6.4 miles out and back. The best time to hike Mount Washburn is between June-October as there can still be snow pack in mid-June.
