Old Faithful GeyserYellowstone's star attraction, and the most famous geyser in the world, Old Faithful is the most regular predictable geyser in the Park, with eruptions occurring approximately every 91 minutes. Shooting 3,700 to 8,400 gallons of boiling water into the air, Old Faithful reaches an average height of about 145 feet in just 15-20 seconds. Park Rangers can predict Old Faithful's eruptions with an extremely high level of accuracy, making this one of the most convenient thermal features to see in Yellowstone. You can practically set your watch by it!
Isa LakeLocated along the drive from Upper Geyser Basin to West Thumb, Isa Lake is a "uniquely confusing" phenomenon. During spring runoff, Isa Lake drains into both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans at the same time... backward! The west side of the lake drains into the Firehole River drainage and ultimately makes is way to the Atlantic, while the east side flows into the Snake River drainage and eventually flows to the Pacific!
Yellowstone LakeCovering 136 square miles, with 110 miles of shoreline, Yellowstone Lake is absolutely massive. This is the largest natural freshwater lake in the United States above 7,000 feet, and one of the largest such lakes in the world. The small West Thumb Geyser Basin is found here, where you can experience a striking contrast between barren thin-crusted thermal areas and the deep blue majesty of the lake just steps away.
Hayden ValleyPerhaps the most picturesque drive in Yellowstone National Park can be found along the stretch of road that runs through Hayden Valley. Rolling hills, lush green meadows, and the wide stretch of the Yellowstone River will hold your gaze captive as you make your way through this truly beautiful valley. This is also prime grizzly bear country, so keep your eyes open for one of Yellowstone's most sought-after animal sightings!
Grand Canyon of the YellowstoneThere are no words to adequately describe the power and majesty of this painted canyon where the Yellowstone River tumbles over two high waterfalls. The awe-inspiring Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is simply one of the most breathtaking sights in the Park. The result of a huge volcanic eruption that occurred about 600,000 years ago, this 24-mile-long canyon is up to 1,200 feet deep and nearly a mile across.
