- Watch the geysers erupt and see the largest colorful hot springs in the US
Yellowstone is the largest active geyser field in the world and is home to the most famous geyser, Old Faithful which erupting erratically every 60–90 minutes. It’s definitely worth the wait to see this geyser spouts boiling water and steam 50+ feet into the air.
There are also hundreds of colorful hot springs and pools such as the Grand Prismatic Hot Spring which is the largest hot spring in the United States, approximately 370 feet in size and around 121 feet deep. The brightly colored rings around the pool get their striking, oversaturated, unnatural-looking hue from heat-loving bacteria; the piercing blue middle is created by extreme temperatures that sterilize the H2O. You can park your car nearby and easily view the spring via a handicap-accessible boardwalk.
