Upper Geyser Basin

Dear and I took an early morning walk about the Upper Geyser Basin which includes Old Faithful. We are early risers and enjoyed the time with few other humans around.

The Upper Geyser Basin, approximately two square miles in area, contains the largest concentration and nearly one-quarter of all of the geysers in the world. A variety of thermal features exist here: spouting geysers, colorful hot springs, and steaming fumaroles.

You can see the Old Faithful Inn in the background where we were staying.

Yellowstone is so amazing in it’s landscape and has so much to offer. We were glad to be in the park and satisfied with what we saw and encountered. We also thought that outer space movies could be filmed here. I still have so much to share from Yellowstone.

  2. As I was scrolling through your post, I was thinking how “other-world”ly these scenes were…and then I got to your last paragraph and see that you were thinking the same thing! These are beautiful and amazing scenes!
