A bicycle trip through Yellowstone is a thrilling challenge, though there are routes available to cyclists of all skill levels. A week before the park opens to regular automobile traffic, bicyclists and hikers are welcome to explore under the...

Yellowstone Lake, Wyoming 82190, USA
If you plan on bringing your own boat and motor to the park, you can launch at Yellowstone and Lewis Lakes; the rest of the park is generally reserved for non-motorized watercraft. Flying Pig Adventure Company can save you a seat on one of their...

Pass through Canyon Village and take the North Rim Drive. Park at Lookout point and take the paved trail down to Brink of Lower falls. As you descend you will indulge yourself in the sounds of rushing water and the smell of fresh pine. Butterflies...

Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190, USA
Old Faithful typically erupts every 35 to 120 minutes, and its show usually lasts for one-and-a-half to five minutes. On the day we were there, the 200-degree water reached 160 feet, which is on the higher end of the spectrum. Observers sit on...

Sapphire Pool, Wyoming 82190, USA
The brilliant blue color of Yellowstone National Park's Sapphire Pool looks like the perfect hot tub for chilly winter park visitors. Sadly, its pristine waters reach temperatures of 200-plus degrees. A little too hot for a soak, but when the wind...

The vivid colors in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water.

Upper Geyser Basin, Wyoming 82190, USA
Half of the world’s geysers are in Yellowstone. There’s Old Faithful, the most famous geyser in the world, but you’ll also find more than 500 others. Check out Old Faithful—and pop into the visitor center for a...

Artist Point, Wyoming 82190, USA
This was my absolute favorite place in Yellowstone. Sorry to say, this photo definitely doesn't capture the scale or the splendor or the rich color of this spot. I'm not sure any photo ever could. You'll just have to witness it for yourself. I...

A place to stop and listen to the healing power of falling water. You can also grab a bite and use the restroom. It's a well trafficked place so you will want to pop in, check it out and head off.

Yellowstone National Park, 3200 Old Faithful Inn Rd, Yellowstone National Park, WY 82190, USA
First things first: You don’t stay at Old Faithful Inn for the luxury or the amenities (there’s no Wi-Fi, no AC, no TVs in the rooms, and some don’t even have private bathrooms). You stay at the lodge to watch bison graze nearby,...

These springs and steam vents make it obvious that Yellowstone is like no place else. Here, hot water seeps up through underground limestone, and when this mineral-rich solution hits the air, it forms terraces of colorful travertine. About 50 such...

Yellowstone National Park is truly a place everyone should visit. This view was only one of many in the Park and surrounding areas that make you feel like you are "On Top of the World". What you are actually on top of is a giant super volcano,...

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone offers various views from different trails. Uncle Tom’s Trail involves many steep stairs, but is well worth it if you don’t have a fear of heights. Pack water, preferably in a CamelBak or something similar that...
