Created over thousands of years, Mammoth Hot Springs is a large complex of otherworldly thermal terraces. The hot water comes from the Norris Geyser Basin after traveling underground from a fault line. Check out the Travertine Terrace and the Liberty Cap while you’re in this area. The Travertine Terrace is made of layers of calcium carbonate terraces that the water dissolves as it flows through the cracks of limestone. Meanwhile, the Liberty Cap is a 37-foot cone-shaped mineral deposit built over hundreds of years by the internal pressure of a hot .....spring that shot water from that one spot. Show less

If there is one place that you really have to see in Yellowstone, it is the colorful Grand Prismatic Spring, the star of the Midway Geyser Basin. It is not only the largest hot spring in the United States (and the third largest in the world), but also one of the most unique natural wonders on the planet. It is also the best recognized and most photographed landmark of Yellowstone. No matter how many times you saw the Grand Prismatic on pictures, it’s only when you stand there that you realize how .....large it actually is. It’s bigger than a football field and deeper than a 10-story building.  Chances are big that your trip to Yellowstone has been inspired by all those incredibly beautiful images of the Grand Prismatic Spring photographed directly from above that you see in so many travel guides and TV documentaries… If you come here with such high expectations, then seeing this famous landmark in real life might disappoint you a bit.  No matter how much you try, you can never get the same view of the Grand Prismatic as in those famous photographs. However, Grand Prismatic Spring is still absolutely incredible and it is also just as colorful in reality as it is in the pictures. If you come here on a sunny day, the rainbow of colors will take your breath away! Show less

Upper Geyser Basin, aka the Old Faithful area, is the most popular place in Yellowstone. It’s here that you’ll find the historic Old Faithful Inn and the biggest best-predictable geyser in Yellowstone, the Old Faithful Geyser. This area is a must in any Yellowstone itinerary! The Old Faithful Geyser erupts at quite regular intervals of about 90 minutes. Eruption times are displayed at the Visitor Center and in several different places throughout the park. While you wait for Old Faithful to erupt, make sure to visit the Old Faithful Inn. Its wooden interior .....is just as impressive as the exterior. READ MORE: Old Faithful Geyser Show less

Of all the thermal areas in Yellowstone National Park, the Norris Geyser Basin is the hottest—reaching 459°F just 1087 feet below the surface. Note that most geothermal activity and things to see in Yellowstone at this elevation are above boiling point. Yikes! The Norris Geyser Basin is also the oldest and most dynamic. Given this alone, it is definitely one of the sites that should be on your list of what to see in Yellowstone. If you don’t know what to do in Yellowstone when you reach the Norris Geyser Basin, you .....should know that it is divided into two areas, the Porcelain Basin and the Back Basin. The Porcelain Basin consists of a three-quarter mile of barren ground with boardwalk trails where you can have a sensory experience of sounds, colors, and smells. Meanwhile, the Back Basin consists of scattered wooded grounds with one and a half-mile of boardwalk trails to take you around the area. In addition, one of the most exciting things to see in Yellowstone is the Steamboat Geyser in the Norris Geyser Basin along the Back Basin trail. It is the world’s tallest active geyser and it is comprised of two water columns that are about 20 feet apart reaching up to over 300 feet tall when it goes off. Steamboat is active and unpredictable and can go off within a period of days to decades for anywhere from 3 minutes to 40 minutes on average. We weren’t lucky enough to be there while it went off but we searched videos of it and it was quite incredible. Don’t miss the Norris Geyser Basin Museum here at the entrance of the trails where you can learn about the science behind the thermal activity on the earth. Show less

To get to Hayden Valley, you will have to do some backtracking. Drive past Old Faithful and the West Thumb Geyser Basin to Hayden Valley. Hayden Valley is one of the best places in Yellowstone to see bison. If you are lucky, there will be a large herd on the roadside so you can get up close with these animals. Traffic jams in Hayden Valley are common. The bison tend to stop smack in the middle of the road, blocking traffic in both directions.

Yellowstone is home to so many different species of wildlife that you’ll inevitably run into some elk or bison in the park. However, none of those experiences can compare to visiting the Lamar Valley, North-East of Yellowstone. The Lamar Valley is a bit further from the main tourist routes in Yellowstone, but it’s definitely worth a detour and a couple of hours of your time. The best time to see wildlife in the Lamar Valley is at sunrise or at sunset. With kids, we couldn’t make it there early in the .....morning, so we went late in the afternoon. Driving through the Lamar Valley was one of the best things we did in Yellowstone and the kids loved it just as much as we did. There were bison EVERYWHERE. Not one, not tens, but hundreds of these incredible animals! They were crossing the road and creating major traffic jams, but nobody minded. For once, we didn’t have any problems keeping kids quiet in the car – they didn’t know where to look first and were not bored for a second! For a real feel, take a look at this short video shot on the road in the Lamar Valley. Show less

Walk the 0.8-mile boardwalk trail to get up close to the Grand Prismatic Spring. Along the way, you will also get to see a few smaller hot springs, such as Excelsior Geyser Crater, Opal Pool, and Turquoise Pool. The boardwalk trail is one-way only. Parking: Good luck finding a parking space if you arrive here between 9 am and 6 pm. The parking lot is ridiculously small for the number of visitors that the Grand Prismatic Spring gets. Most of the parking spills out onto the park road. Normally, I would .....recommend waiting for a space in the parking lot, but if everyone did this, it would create stand-still traffic on the park road. There are large turn outs on the park road very close to Midway Geyser Basin. If the parking lot is full, park in one of these turn outs. Parking in Yellowstone. Parking at the most popular sites has become a big issue due to high crowds. There is just not enough parking for the number of visitors. You can get real time updates on parking availability and traffic conditions on the Yellowstone National Park website. Show less

17:50 – Firehole Canyon Drive is a one way road that travels north to south on the way between Madison and Midway Geyser Basin. It’s very easy to add to your Yellowstone itinerary and is just a beautiful drive. If you are driving Firehole Canyon on a hot day or in the afternoon, there is a beautiful swimming hole that is NPS sanctioned. It’s one of the only swimming spots in Yellowstone. 19:00 – Midway Geyser Basin is small but beautiful. This is home to the Grand Prismatic Spring and several .....other beautiful pools. It’s a must-see stop and you MUST plan for it!! The main Midway Geyser area is just a boardwalk loop, so it doesn’t take a long time, and this will take you by the Grand Prismatic Spring. TO VIEW FROM ABOVE: hike the Fairy Falls Trail head to get to the overlook.  This is a really easy 1.2 mile round-trip hike. Allot 1.5 hours because the view really is spectacular! Show less

After lunch, our next destination was Lamar Valley. We went through Hayden Valley several times and saw hundreds of bison and other animals, so we were excited for Lamar Valley. We heard that Lamar Valley is known for having wolves roaming around, so we were really hoping to see one. Unfortunately we weren’t that lucky, but did see gorgeous landscapes. Just like Hayden Valley, this would be a great place to bring dinner to and watch the Valley come to life around dusk. Back to list

Tower Fall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Yellowstone. It’s a beautiful waterfall and very easy to see. The viewpoint is located 100 yards from the Tower General Store and it only takes a few minutes to visit. There is also a trail leading to the base of the waterfall. However, it was partially closed when we visited and based on what I’m reading, it’s still not possible to hike all the way to the bottom of this waterfall. Anyway, with just two days in Yellowstone, I suggest that you .....simply visit the Tower Fall viewpoint and move on to explore the more impressive Yellowstone canyon area. TIP: If you need to stock up on food or drinks for lunch, you can do it here as well. The next place with shops and restaurants is Canyon Village. Show less

Across from the dining room there is the lounge bar. I’d suggest grabbing a glass of wine then making your way out to the rocking chairs on the .....porch. Along with the food, there are also Old Western things to do in Roosevelt. They have horseback riding as well as stage coach rides that operate several times a day.

This geyser basin is part of the Upper Geyser Basin. You can walk here from Old Faithful, but it’s a long walk, so I recommend driving here instead. This geyser basin is named for its black sand, which is formed from obsidian, which occurs when lava cools very quickly. This is a showcase of colorful pools and Cliff Geyser, which erupts every few minutes.

After hiking back up the Tower Falls trail, which turned out to be a bit harder on the kids than we thought, it was time for lunch. We packed a picnic lunch before we left the RV and planned on finding an off-the-beaten-path place to eat. Enter Slough Creek. We drove north out of Tower Falls and turned right at Tower junction toward the northeast entrance. The Slough Creek campground is about 10 miles from the junction. We pulled in and drove about 2 miles on a gravel road to .....the parking lot. The parking lot is for the Slough Creek Trail, which seemed like a very cool trail to hike. We were more interested in eating at this point than hiking, so we skipped this trail. We did see a few people hiking with fishing rods and waders. There is a good fishing lake about 3 miles down the trail. You can also hike all the way into Montana if you’d like, it’s about 10 miles away. There were a few picnic tables at the far end of the parking lot, and being the reasonable man that I am, figured we’d set up over there to eat. The kids had a different idea. There were large boulders in a tall-grassed field next to the parking lot. They paired up and each found their own boulder to eat on. Hey, when in Rome, I guess… All I could do was crack a beer and eat my salad. Back to list Show less

Hiking to the top of Mount Washburn is considered one of the best things to do in Yellowstone. The views from the 10,243 feet (3,1 km) top are incredible and if you are lucky you might run into some bighorn sheep or even bears (make sure you carry a bear spray if hiking in more remote areas of Yellowstone!). Visiting Mount Washburn requires a strenuous hike that takes about 2-3 hours one way, so it is definitely not for everyone. Interesting to know:  If you are up for this hike, you should .....know that there are two trails leading to the top. (1) The main hiking trail starts at the Dunraven Pass. It’s about 3,2 miles  (5,2 km)one way and offers better views along the entire route, but it is also more challenging. (2) The second option is the Chittenden Road Trail that follows a wide service road to the top of Mount Washburn. It’s 2,5 miles (4 km) one way and is easier to hike, but the views along this route aren’t that impressive. TIP: Carry lots of water and a picnic. Make sure you also have a jacket as it can get really windy and cold on top. Arrive early as car parking areas at both trailheads are not very big. Also, afternoon storms are common in summer, and you don’t want to be on top in the storm. Practical information: The trail is only open from June to September and even in summer can have some snow on it.  Show less

If you have a sensitive nose, you won’t like the smell at the Mud Volcano. Mud and pungent hydrogen sulfide gas burble up from the depths, making the whole place smell like rotten eggs. A 0.6-mile path winds through the features. Be sure to head across the road to visit Sulphur Caldron too. It’s the most acidic spring in Yellowstone.

Some sites sit in the open while others tuck under large pines. At 6,600 feet in elevation, hiking up or down the hill to vault toilets or to the hand-cranked water pump may have you huffing and puffing. A trail drops from the campground to the Tower Fall observation area, but be prepared to climb back uphill. Horseback trail .....rides and a restaurant are two miles north at Roosevelt Lodge.

To make it easier to plan your time, I created this map indicating all the places that you should be able to see in Yellowstone in one day. You can do this trip arriving via the South Entrance (coming from Jackson/Grand Teton NP), via the East Entrance (coming from Cody), or via the West Entrance (coming from Bozeman/ West Yellowstone). Depending on where you enter and leave the park, you’ll have to adjust this itinerary a bit. But it gives you a good idea of what can be done in Yellowstone in .....a day. Note that you can do the loop in either direction and it doesn’t matter much where exactly you start or finish. Show less

Once in Bozeman our next destination is to Livingston, MT traveling along Interstate 90. Once at Livingston we jump on Hwy 89 driving south down through scenic Paradise Valley before reaching Gardiner, MT, a drive of about 52 miles. Also running through this valley is the Yellowstone Riveras it flows northward out of the park. As with previous years we saw hundreds of deer and elk who have chosen this beautiful valley as their winter range. Along this route you will come to a sign for Corwin Springs located 8 .....miles north of Gardiner, MT and the North Entrance to Yellowstone National park. Here you will find Yellowstone Hot Springs (yellowstonehotspringsmt.com), a mineral spring situated next to the Yellowstone River and a great place to relax and soak after a long day of adventuring. The hot springs is open on some weekends during the winter months. Show less

Blacktail Plateau Drive

Blacktail Plateau Drive is lightly-trafficked scenic drive. This 7-mile, one-way dirt road heads parallel along the Grand Loop Road between Mammoth and Tower. If you get lucky, you can spot bison, elk, and bear (we were not so lucky). Even so, it’s a fun, enjoyable ride with beautiful scenery. It takes about 30 minutes to do this drive. A 4×4 is not necessary but it does make the drive easier. We saw minivans and sedans on this road. I drove a Jeep Compass. RV’s, buses, and trailers are not permitted on .....this road. Blacktail Plateau Drive is open from June through September. Show less

Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is a great place to see grizzly bears and wolfs in a safe environment. Some animals come from Yellowstone, the others – from as far as Alaska. All the animals who live here are unable to survive in the wild. This center gives them a second chance, while at the same time providing an educational experience to Yellowstone visitors. At the moment of writing, there are seven bears and five wolves in the Center, as well as some birds of prey and a Karelian bear dog. You .....can see the animals all year round. The bears at the Centre do not hibernate. Interesting to know: Admission tickets are valid for two consecutive days. So if you are staying in West Yellowstone, you could certainly visit two times. Practical information: Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is located in West Yellowstone, just outside the West Entrance of the park. It’s open 365 days a year. Count 1,5-2 hours for a visit.

Elephant Back Mountain

The Elephant Back Mountain Trail is a four mile trail that leads up a huge mountain in Yellowstone. There are a lot of trees and the path up is a little challenging, but the view from the top makes the long hike worth it. While my family and I were climbing, we saw plenty of wildlife and amazing views. When we reached the top, we saw a huge outstretched landscape filled with beautiful mountains and long flowing rivers. On our way down the trail it started to hail and my .....family had to quickly run back down! Although the hike up was very tiring it gave me a chance to see lots of animals and the beautiful sights of Yellowstone. Show less

It runs along the Madison River and it is the closest entrance to the Madison campground and the Old Faithful. You should also take this entrance if you want a view of the Purple Mountain and the National Park Mountain. This entrance is closed from December to March. Back to the Top

Beehive Geyser

This was one of our favorite Yellowstone sights! The Bee Hive Geyser randomly started shooting while we were attending the Junior Ranger program at the visitor center. Named for the 4 foot cylinder cone resembling a beehive, it fires its water 200 ft straight up into the air. Eruptions last about 5-minutes and end with a roaring steam that can be heard a quarter-mile away. It’s a Yellowstone must see and I think way cooler than Old Faithful. Trouble is, no one ever knows when it goes off, but usually twice a day. May .....you be as fortunate as we were. Show less
